My Ex-Husband Financially Ruined Me

By on December 18, 2015

Question:

Dear Steve,

My ex husband and I divorced almost 5 years ago. He took the house in the divorce however I am the only one listed on the deed. As part of the divorce decree, I agreed to sign a quit claim deed if he sold the property. He agreed to pay certain debts as part of that agreement, but stopped paying before the ink was dry on the divorce.

This forced me into bankruptcy. As soon as my bankruptcy was discharged, he caught up all of the payments. I am financially ruined for the next 7 years from this mess. My question is this, can I make him pay some form of restitution in exchange for signing the quit claim deed?

Tracey

Answer:

Dear Tracey,

I think that ship sailed as far as retroactively going back and asking for something for signing the quit claim.

But why is your credit ruined for seven years? It’s ridiculously easy to rebuild your credit after a bankruptcy. Read How to Easily Rebuild Your Credit and Have Good Credit Again.

The bankruptcy gave you a clean break from your ex-husband. That’s a gift in itself.

It’s time to let it go, jump on improving your credit, and don’t look back.
