Eustis, FL asked in Bankruptcy for Florida

Q: Husband filed bankruptcy and included our home mortgage in it. I was awarded house. What can he do to remove it

Husband filed bankruptcy right before our divorce and included our home mortgage in it. I was awarded house in divorce. He has to remove the home mortgage from his bankruptcy so I can refinance the home in my name. U.S. Bankruptcy court processed it for release. Mortgage company still says it is in bankruptcy. What different options must he do to have the mortgage company release it for refinancing?

A: If the bankruptcy court has ordered the release and abandoned any interest in it, you should be able to present that paperwork to the mortgage company. If they won’t accept it, you need to find a new mortgage company.
