    If you were on title during the time the fees were due, then you are responsible. Separation, divorce etc. makes no difference with respect to legal obligation to pay HOA fees. Even if your divorce decree stated that ex is responsible to pay, you remain legally liable to the HOA.

    HOA fees

    Even though I'm on the deed as pro-forma, I am still responsible?

    I don't think you know what you are talking about.
    There is a difference between a divorce decree and a deed to the property.
    Have an attorney review both for you.

    I know, I'm sorry, I had typed decree in the first question. But I do know the difference. On the deed of trust, it says, his name herein joined pro forma by me. In the divorce decree , he was awarded the house because it was purchased with inheritance money. But that's another story. Anyway, my question is, just because I was on the deed , I am responsible for the HOA fees?
