Ok, I’ve attempted (twice in two weeks) to remove my ex-wife’s name from the 2nd mortgage we took out together when we bought our home. (She’s already off the first) The problem is the housing market here, like most areas, has taken some hits. This down-turn has offset any of the gains in equity I’ve seen in the four and a half short years I’ve been in the home. In a nutshell, I can’t get refinanced right now, so, I’m kinda stuck. She’s in a home now, but wants to purchase a newer, bigger home, and thus wants to ensure her maximum borrowing potential . My question is, since we both took the loan out while we were married/together, can she take any legal action to force my hand on this? (I.E., force me to sell the home) I don’t want to sell in this market as I’ll lose my shirt.
