If you are signed on the mortgage, it is likely they will come after you. At the time the divorce papers, you should have requested your name to be removed from the mortgage. If in doubt, contact your divorce attorney.

It would seem that a legal problem such as this ought to be referred to your attorney. Oftimes, a letter from an attorney will garner more attention than one from an individual.

Well babygurl, you're not going to like the answer, but the simple fact is that the LENDER made a deal with YOU and YOUR EX. There is NOTHING that a divorce decree can do to change that!

IMO your divorce ATTORNEY screwed up (assuming you had one), by allowing you to finalize the divorce with your name still on the mortgage and deed. This is something that they should have learned in their third week of CONTRACTS in law school

Sorry about the bad news.

If you were a co-signer on the loan, then yes, they can still come after you. Provided, of course, that your ex didn't refinance the house after the settlement with a loan soley in his name. (Always a good idea to mandate in a divorce proceeding when you're giving up your interest in the home.)

same thing happened to me! my ex had his vechicle repoed and i was a co signer even though the divorce papers stated it was his financial responsibility i got sued because he filed for bankruptcy. they settled for 1/2 which i'm still paying on!! only way to get your name off things is to have them refinance
