Re: HOW CAN I STOP FROM DROWNING AT THE HANDS OF MY SOON-TO-BE EX

If the home is in both names you can ask the court for it to be sold.  Talk to the ex about a short sale and those options.  You could also talk to the mortgage company about those options.  Your attorney should be able to help you with asking that the house be sold.  Another thought would be to get in touch with the mortgage company and ask for a modification.  But first, you need to realize that YOU need to take things into your own hands and protect your credit.  Waiting for an ex to do what they should wont work.
