how did ex husband get name off mortgage without me refinancing?...I got the marital home in the divorce. The deed was in both our names. My ex signed over the deed to me so that his name is no longer on it. There was an existing mortgage on the home at time of divorce and still, 11 years later. I was paying the mortgage after the divorce and still am, but I NEVER refinanced it. One day I noticed that his name had been taken off the mortgage and I had been assigned a new mortgage loan number in my name alone. How was this done? And, was it legal for him and the bank to do this without either ever notifying me?? He was the primary signer of the mortgage while we were still married and it was based on his income. I did not work and still do not.
