My ex and I have been divorced for three years. I have been paying the mortgage (taxes and insurance included) since. We do not have a judgement on the property (bad divorce) and my ex is still on the deed and mortgage. Due to my ex-husband's unemployment, I have not been receiving child support for 10 months. I have fallen behind on house and am considering taking a loan on my retirement to catch up. If I continue to pay the mortgage, if the house sells, does claim to 50% of the house?? Is what I have paid taken into consideration if and when the house sells?? I don't plan on leaving the house, but I don't want to keep paying the mortgage if he has claim to it. We paid into the house 10 years together on a 40 year mortgage and I am considering taking a loan to catch up.
