Thanks so much for your considerable patience on this. Generally, the only way to get your name off of a loan is either a) by court order or b) by refinancing. The court usually doesn't have the authority to require the bank to take your name off of the loan. This means that your wife will need to refinance the property in her own name. If she cannot refinance the property in her own name, then she will likely have to sell the property to stay consistent with the order that you no longer be responsible for the mortgage debt.
What other questions did you have for me today that I can help you out with:-)?
