Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good afternoon,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.
1. What is your question?Doug
Was your attorney in the divorce case not sophisticated enough to include a clause in your marital settlement agreement that while your wife got the house, she was legally obligated to pay the mortgage? And that she would hold you harmless from the debt?
I can offer you the opportunity to speak with me by phone, right now, for just $9 more. I'll make the offer.
Hi,I won't be able to assist you if you are not able to provide the minimal information I sought clarification on. Please get back to me with this information at your earliest convenience.Doug
You wrote : The mortgage company can legally hold be liable for the loan no matter what the divorce decree has in it. I NEVER suggested that the mortgage company could not hold you liable. Of course they can! I commented about a clause in the MSA regarding you wife agreeing to be legally responsible for the mortgage in the MSA and whether there was an indemnification clause.
If you will re-read our correspondence you will see that I have not answered any question from you yet. So I couldn't possibly have provided an answer that is counter to what you may have been told by someone else.
