This is general information and no attorney client relationship is established.
The site may ask you if you wish to speak by phone for an extra charge. Many find the phone call to be the easiest and fastest way to get the information they need without posting on a public forum. I am also happy to continue online.

Typically, when one spouse is on title and both are on the loan, if the property was to remain in the name of titled spouse, the court would give them a certain amount of time to refinance in their own name, while meeting the current obligation themself.
If they did not refinance within the allotted time then they would be in contempt of court and subject to sanction.
Please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for answering your question.
There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.
The property is not marital if it is titled in your parents' names.
The court will likely require refinancing to release the non possessory ex spouse from liability.
Probably not. It is not titled to you or her.
You are very welcome.
