Divorced /remarried but still listed on house


#1

If your ex-spouse was ordered by a court to refinance and has not done so, you can file a motion for contempt in court.

your ex-spouse’s remarriage does not have any impact on whether he/she should be held in contempt.

We were in a similar situation and offered my husband’s ex $ towards the refinancing in order to get her to refinance earlier. We also took less equity due just to get out of a bad situation which was ruining his credit. She did it and he finally got a credit card after trying for 2 years!

Good advice and a smart solution. Thank you.

Divorce was finalized last year and ex was ordered by the court to refinance the house by June 2006 in order to remove my name. Ex has just remarried and is living in that same house. Do I still have to wait until next year or does my ex getting married again change anything? My credit is really suffering…can’t do anything until my name is off that house.

Thanks for your response.
