What is the name of your state? New Hampshire
I just found out that my ex refinanced my mortgage(1998) 2 years after he moved(1996) out and 1 year before we were legally divorced(1999). In the divorce I was awarded the home free and clear of his interest. But it also states when he left (1996) as legal date of separation. It was my savings that paid the downpayment on this house.
I am on the mortgage as coborrower (I did not have a job at the time, 3 kids), but I was not aware of any of this. I found out when I discovered that my loan has been extended 5 years ($60,000) and the loan amount is for $10000 more than I owed the last time I looked at it. Now he put me through hell (violent). No child support for years and two jobs, psychiatric help for the kids (3) etc. I was not in any shape to question any bills only to find a way to pay them. I claimed bankruptcy in 1999 just before they were going to foreclose.
I think he may have used his new wife to forge my signature.
I know this sounds like a silly question, but do I have recourse?
Should I see a lawyer?
