It would depend on the exact wording of the divorce judgment and MSA. I include in mine that maintenance can be used when one party has been harmed by the other failing to pay. The court will then order maintenance sufficient to pay the mortgage.

Courts can order payment.

Courts can order the payment for damages related to the failure to pay.

Certainly they could order you to pay her bankruptcy costs. It would depend on how she wants to handle it.

I would probably talk to her about it, and give her notice before it blows up in your face.
