I can’t afford to continue making these house payments. What are my options if my name is the only one on the loan?
I do not practice law in your state. Therefore, I cannot inform you as to the specific laws of your state and can only provide you with general tips on your situation.
Looking at the situation from a practical standpoint, you should try to make the payments because failing to do so will get you behind on your mortgage and could result in a contempt order from the court.
That being said, if you are at a point financially where you just cannot do it anymore you need to consult with a Family Law attorney in your area. Divorce is a complicated process and the laws and procedures vary from state to state. With the help of a skilled practitioner, there may be a way to have the court reconsider its prior order.
