I have had at least one similar; but I don't recall ever getting to a Closing.
The odds are long with estranged couples, and they're long on shorts . . . . combine the two and they're next to impossible.
The spouses are probably both in denial and blaming one another for the predicament that they're in; thinking that they can punish the other by not cooperating.
They're headed to Foreclosure . . . . this will just accelerate the process.
Some situations are just not worth investing your time !
You only live about 29,000 days; so you can't spend many on these.
Good Luck !
