If your name is still attached to the mortgage, then yes, you are liable for any delinquent payments your former spouse may have accrued.
Additionally, if the home goes into foreclosure, that will appear on your credit report, even though you’re divorced.
If your divorce attorney failed to properly handle the matter of the house, you may need to take action right away to protect your credit.
If your former spouse has failed to follow through on a court order, such as to have the home refinanced to remove your liability, then a judge can take steps to enforce the order.
No one wants to be stuck paying bills they thought their divorce cleared them of.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you correct oversights from your divorce or enforce orders that have been disregarded.
