I'm divorced, but in the house reminded in both our names

Customer Question

I'm divorced, but in the house reminded in both our names until sold. Instead of making the mortgage payments as ordered, my ex filed for bankruptcy. My question is I would like to keep the house, there is a 2nd mortgage on the home that is just in my ex's name. Can I be responsible for that second mortgage or would he be responsible for it, or could the bank have to eat the 2nd.
