My ex and I divorced in 2012. We had bought a house together in 2007. Both had put down 10% of the downpayment amounting to 40000 each. At the time of divorce he had me sign away the house to his name alone. I was so emotionally distraught that I didn’t even get a copy of the papers. And was stupid enough to trust him when he said he’ll take my name off the loan. I walked away with nothing as I didn’t hire a divorce lawyer.
I found out late 2018 that my credit rating was low and was shocked to discover the cause. Yes, my name is still on the mortgage and the bank refuses to take it off even though I sent them the divorce papers. When I called and confronted my ex he promised to take my name off. 6 months later he still hasn’t done anything.
Can I sue him? The divorce was mutual and granted nothing to me. I’m worried about the future and if I can buy a house again. What can I do now after so many years have passed?
