Divorcee should wipe name from mortgage

Qualifying for home loan after split can be nightmare

Q: My ex-husband and I bought a house in 1995. We divorced in 1999, and pursuant to our divorce decree, he kept the house and I moved out. We both remarried in 2000. My new husband and I have a new mortgage on our home, after fighting to prove to the lender that my ex has the previous house.

I know my ex has changed something on his mortgage. He was making higher payments for a year after he fell behind a couple of months. I really don’t know the details because I no longer own the house.
