Good afternoon. If part of the divorce settlement/agreement, is going to be that you share in the mortgage payments, that can be agreed to and ordered by the court. To be honest, if you go on the mortgage, you would be liable if if it is not paid and right now, only he would be liable. As such, you could be afforded some protection, with your credit. Now, it may be court ordered, if he asks for it, that the loan be refinanced and placed in both names, if shared ownership will remain but that is up to the Judge to decide.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
