I assume from your question that you are married and filing a joint return. If that is the case, then the answer to your question is yes, you can claim a deduction for mortgage interest, even if only one spouse is listed on that mortgage note. Filing a joint return in essence means that both spouses are reporting their individual incomes and/or expenses, regardless of which spouse incurred the expense or earned the income.
