Thank you for using JustAnswer.
I'm sorry to hear about your situation. No, this would not be something that you can have forced off your credit. You see, the credit report shows your accounts that you had opened and the history on those accounts. Even if the decree showed that you were not personally responsible for the deficiency or other expenses related to the foreclosure (by virtue of being "in rem") that doesn't impact the disposition of the account. Now if it showed a judgment against you for a balance remaining after the foreclosure, you could contest that due to the in rem matter, as you would not have had any legal liability on that from the beginning (because they couldn't get a judgment against you in an in rem legal matter). But as you did have personal responsibility on the mortgage prior to the foreclosure, it would be accurate to say that this account ended in foreclosure, so there's really nothing illegal or incorrect on this credit report.
