Q: I'm in foreclosure; can the mortgage co. send my ex-wife a certified notice or would that be considered slander?

The property has always been in my name only & predates the marriage. My ex never lived there; her name was never on any of the paperwork. The divorce final judgment was 10/31/95. Our agreement clearly indicated the property was mine & she has no claim to it.

My husband was married & owned a home with his now ex wife. She foreclosed on the home & my husband & I were added to the judgment.

That sounds peculiar, generally banks foreclose and not ex-spouses .. but I suppose it could happen. Bring all the documents to your favorite local family, bankruptcy, consumer law counselor and have them go over all of the documents and correspondence for a precise insight.
