Thank you. In a situation like this, a party would need to take their ex spouse back to court and seek to enforce the order and/or hold the party in contempt, for failing to comply. If she was ordered the home, she had a requirement to pay the mortgage. If she could not afford it, she needed to advise of the same and it could have been sold. In addition, she needs to make a good faith effort to refinance it and if there is equity in the home, needs to do that. As such, you need and want to go back to court and ask the Judge to order and compel her to short sale it or cooperate with you, to modify the loan, so it does not get defaulted on. You also do not want your credit ruined, so maybe the Judge will allow you to keep the home and bring the loan current.
