Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help - how did he get a mortgage on a house without your signature? Did he forge your name on the documents?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Could have he's done it before. The mortgage Co said that because his name was on the original mortgage, that he could legally do it.
Family Lawyer: DanLegal, Divorce Lawyer replied 4 months ago

If it is only your name on the lease that is not good information and you may have an action against the bank. But your question is specific to wanting to know if you can take care of the mortgage through a divorce correct?
