My husband & I separated in Feb'08. Our divorce was final in Nov '09, the house was left to me in the decree, however we never refinanced or changed anything regarding the deed so the house has been in both of our names since the seperation. I lived there for a year (Feb 08-Oct 09)& made regular payments but soon realized I couldn't afford it much longer so I started renting it out. In Aug '10 my ex-husband wanted to move back into the home, we drew up an agreement & had it notarized that he would pay the mortgage, also if there was any change to his employment he would let me know and he would move out. He moved in 9/2010. Turns out he quit his job and let the house go into foreclosure. Can I sue him for not paying the mortgage &breaching our agreement? What can I do to protect my credit?
