The divorce decree should have provided that your wife shall refinance the residence within a said amount of days to remove your name from the mortgage, or, if she is unable to refinance the residence and remove your name from the mortgage, then the house shall be placed for immediate sale.
The divorce decree is between you and your ex-wife only. It has nothing to do with the mortgage company. If you are on the mortgage you are responsible for the debt. If you wife defaults, your credit will be affected and your only recourse is to file a motion to have her held in contempt of court and possibly a motion for sale
You should file a motion to modify the Judgment for Dissolution to contain the above language.
You can go back to court on a contempt motion. The judge can not order the mortgage company to remove you from the mortgage. He can order the house be sold or that after a legitimate attempt your ex is unable to refinance, he could leave you on the mortgage with some type of mortgage payment verification.
