When you say you want to remove your name from the mortgage, do you actually mean that you also want to remove your name from the title?
Have you spoken to the bank about this?
You will not lose any ownership rights by moving out of the home. It is possible that you will lose your right to occupy the home, but not to own it.
If you want to remove yourself from the title of the home you will need the consent of the bank. They will only agree if your former spouse has a strong enough credit rating to carry the mortgage alone.
Let me know if you need any further clarification.
