Of course there is - but it needs to be addressed in the divorce decree - BEFORE it is signed, not afterwards. Even though she will take title to the house, you will remain on the mortgage unless it is first sold, or refinanced. You can take a lien on the house (and is the VERY least you should do), but my experience is that it rarely solves the problem you describe.
