In 2005 I got divorced, in the divorce I signed off on everything, including the house- I filed a quit claim through my lawyer. There was 2 mortgages on the home in both our names, and she was according to the divorce papers to remove my name from the loans and have them in her sole name. I was to retain posession of my truck and my Harley and that was it. The truck was paid off, and the Harley was a gift and in her sole name on the loan…. 2 months later, she filed bankruptcy. The Harley was re-posessed- and now I have judgements against me for the mortgages since she never removed my name from the loans. Are my only options to pay it- or file bankruptcy myself? She didnt stick to anything we agreed on in the divorce, but is she accountable?
