My ex wife assumed the house and all responsibility of debt during the divorce. The loan is still in my name though. And now the Mortgage is almost 120 days past due and close to foreclosure.
Was there no provision requiring her to refinance the mortgage indebtedness?
It sounds like you have an action for contempt of court against her. Please consult a local attorney to schedule an appointment to fully discuss this matter with them.

You need to conukt with an experianced family law attorney about the possiblity of filing a contempt action against your spouse for not paying the mortgage as the divorce decree requires.
It is importnamt to also remember a divorce does not change the fact you are liable for the mortgage as the mortage in your name. The Mortgage company can come after you for the amounts due and it is impacting your credit rating.
