I was divorced in January 2016. My divorce
decree states the house was awarded to my ex wife. My question is, how do I get my name off of the mortgage and we also used my VA benefits to get a VA Loan? What do I need to do to get myself removed from the mortgage? The divorce decree doesn not state for her to refinance or sell the property.
JA: Because family law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: Yes, I was told that we can't MAKE her refinance. I'm not sure where to go next
JA: What advice did they give you?
Customer: That's all he told me during the process. I've recently asked again since my ex's lawyer sent a special warranty deed for me to sign and they were sent a deed of trust to secure assumption for my ex to sign. I don't believe that these will remove me from the mortgage or the va loan, so in the future I won't be able to use my va benefits again
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: I was awarded equity in the home and was already paid for that.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Family Lawyer
about your situation and then connect you two.
