My partner and I purchase a home. We are currently in the process of separting. She doesn't want to sell the house. My name is also on the Deed. What can I do?My wife and I divorced 2 years ago. The court ordered her to sell the house and split the equity. She has not listed the house yet and it's been two years. I have contacted my attorney now, but was wondering why it would cost me $1000 to get my name off of the mortgage? The mortgage company is telling me that. I live in Colorado. My wife doesn't make enough to refinance and keep the house, but she doesn't see that. I want my name removed before she defaults on her payment. Do you know why I would have to pay t$1000 o remove my name from the mortgage or does this sound wrong to you?
