I have been divroced for 5 years. My wife didn't want the house and I did. The judge awarded it to me and I was supposed to assume the loan and hold her harmless. I never assumed the loan or refinanced. I never even tried to. I have been late on at least 6 payments per year, sometimes over 90 days. My credit is not good and I know I won't be able to refinance. I have been served papers for contmept and a motion to vacate the property settlement. What will happen at arraignment? Do I even have a chance of keeping the house? Both of our names are on the mortgage and the deed. What happens if I am guilty of contempt? She can afford to refinance the house, do you think the judge will let her have it? SHe also asked for attorneys fees. Do I have to pay these?
