Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
The quitclaim deed doesn't have anything to do with the mortgage.......so you giving up your interest in the property via the quitclaim deed didn't relieve you of your obligation under the mortgage.
If the divorce decree requires your ex to refinance the property in order to remove your name from the loan.....and relieve you of liability......then you can enforce that provision and hold your ex in contempt until that happens.
But, if the order doesn't state anything about your ex refinancing the debt to remove your name, there's not much you could do unless you were to file a motion to modify the order to require him to refinance the debt.
Please let me know if you need anything further. Also, please take time to positively rate our conversation so I may receive credit for assisting. Thanks!
