The ownership of the property (deed) and the obligation to repay the debt (mortgage) are separate...when were you divorced and why wasn't anything done about the property at that time?
The document you want your name off of is the Promissory Note. Its the paper the obligates you to pay back the loan.
The only way to do this is to have your house refinanced in her name only.
