I'm dealing with this. My ex is supposed to refinance the house we had together and get me off the mortgage. He hasn't been able to do so, probably because his debt-to-income ratio is screwed without me on the mortgage. At the moment, I'm not in a panic. It's a rented-out duplex, and he pays the mortgage. However, I'm not going to wait forever. I started legal proceedings against him, but the lawyer discovered he had a conflict of interest. I haven't pursued it since.
The biggest thing I've learned from this is never to get married again.
