Unfortunately, no, the judge in your divorce case cannot order the mortgage company to approve your application to refinance your home.
Many people find themselves in situations where their credit isn’t adequate to refinance their marital home into their own name, removing their spouse from the obligation.
This is generally a term of the divorce settlement, and a failure to refinance can result in your ex-spouse taking action to have the home sold.
If your divorce is still ongoing, you may have other options that can change your financial picture enough to get the refi approved.
If your goal is maintaining the home, you have to be able to negotiate terms that will make that possible.
