If your ex is willing to sign off, you can go to any local escrow company for drawing the document.  Most will do it for a nominal fee, like $75 or $100 plus recording.  If you have an established relationship, they might do it for free.

I believe that title companies prefer to use grant deeds instead of quit claim deeds.  The escrow company should be able to advise you on that.  If you want to be sure it is done right, it would be best to run it through a title insurance company.  You might want to check to see if you have a title company escrow in your area.

If both parties are in agreement it is a simple as filling out the Quit Claim form and taking it to the country recorder to have it processed.  If there are loans against the property a refinance will handle all of the details.

If she is willing to be removed from the deed refinance the property and have her signed off the mortgage (if one exists) at the same time as the quit claim deed is done. Then all of your problems go away.

If you can not handle the mortgage on your own it is probably time to sell the house.

I am not an attorney, so do check with one. But do note, removing an ex from the title of your home does NOT remove her from a mortgage or line of equity commitment. Just sayin'
