Re: Credit repair after divorce.

As a cosigner on the loan, if she defaults, you are still liable in the eyes of the lendor for the default itself until such time as you raise a legal defense based on terms of your divorce decree.  If they bring legal action and name you as a defendant, the specific terms of your divorce decree will be used to determine your liability.  I would get a lawyer ASAP.
