Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
How about HOA judgments/liens on a property my ex wife owned that I was on deed? Our marital separation agreement dictated that I was NOT responsible and would be quit claimed off (it never happened). Would I either be able to have the judgment ammended to not list me, or reopen my BK and have that debt removed as well?
I never lived in it. Not for even a day. We bought it to fix and sell, she ended up divorcing me (thank God) and moved into that unit. She let it lapse. I was not on Note/Mortgage, just deed. The HOAs started to acrue much longer before I filed for Chapter 7.
What would the easiest solution be?
Reopen BK and include debt?
Peition the court to have judgment ammended and use my MSA (dated LONG before she went late) showing I was to be removed from title?
What if I wanted it removed from the clerks records so people who look me up (which has happened, wont see three judgments not belonging to me.
If I quit claimed myself off then? Or could I not do that since I was named in the judgment and are essentially just stuck with it on there?
That's all the questions for now. :)
Thanks a ton.
