Divorce w/Bankruptcy. Can I get her name off the house without refinancing?
Asked Sep 4, 2007, 12:41 PM
Ok my wife and I are currently filing chapter 7 bankruptcy, and planning a dissolution of the marriage. The house is in both of our names, is there any way to remove her name from the deed/mortgage (with her consent) without refinancing? If not, what are the odds of being able to get the refinancing after the bankruptcy? And would I be better off just putting the house into the bankruptcy instead? I would like to keep the house, and she's OK with that. But, understandably, she does not want her name on it any longer. It's a confusing situation, help!
