Not necessarily. Michigan has a $34,000 homestead exemption, which means that even if the bank holds a mortgage, they cannot touch up to $340000 of your equity in the house. So really, it depends how much you owe on the house and what the house's fair market value is.
If your ex is still on the mortgage, then she is is still liable to pay it off with you.
