My ex and I were in a bankruptcy, it was dismissed. We filed for a divorce. At the time we were behind in our mortgage, he moved out. I told my lawyer there was no way I could catch up the payments, so I told my lawyer we would probably sell the house. So the lawyer put in the divorce decree the house would be sold by October of 2017.
My ex and I went to a realtor, signed papers to put it on the market. I found an apartment sold all my belongings to have money to move.
I reached out to the loan company and told them my situation. They told me I could file for a loan modification. After my divorce was final. My lawyer asked why I didn't tell her I was filing for a modification. I explained to her my ex and I filed before and they said no, so I figured to sell; not knowing I could file for a modification again. Well I mailed in my divorce decree. They gave me the loan modification. I moved back into the house.
The loan has always been in my name only, but he is on the deed. He refuse to sign. The mortgage company said not to worry about it.
What do I need to do to get him off the deed since the loan is in my name and I am paying.
