How do I become a vested owner on a property? Because of a recent divorce and my ex-husband allowing our home to go into foreclosure, I am unable to get on the mortgage for this property. I pay half the mortgage payments and have put money into the house and i want to safeguard my investment. How do I legally get named on the property? Are there other options for me to safeguard my investment in this property? The divorce decree clearly states that my husband had responsibility for that house, but I am being penalized on my credit report, what steps do I take to remedy that situation? Thank you very much.
