Good afternoon. What is in the divorce decree regarding the home?
Thank you for the reply. In order to get off the mortgage, the home would need to either be refinanced, solely in her name or she would have to contact the bank and see if they would agree and allow her to assume the loan solely in her name. Normally, the Judge would have ordered if she was supposed to be financially responsible for it, that she would need to do this in a specific time frame but if she has not and she was required to, you could file a motion to compel her to act. You can contact her and share that you want to avoid going back to court and if she can send 1 year of payments, so you can obtain a loan, you will not take action.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
