Civil damages from damage to credit rating
My ex-wife took over some community debt that is still in my name as per our divorce decree. Then she basically decided to just stop paying it (includes a mortgage and home equity credit line). This has resulted in measurable and massive damage to my credit including 3 mortgage defaults. My divorce decree has a ”hold harmless provision” which I thought indemnified me against such damage or at least gave me recourse, but now I’m not sure what to do. I am now in a place with my credit where I can’t purchase necessary items (like a home or car) through financing and am losing money and financial opportunity.
Do I have a case to recover civil monetary damages from her as a result?
