Question by sillygurlkim: What can I do to get my ex-husband to refiance the mortgage to remove my name?
I divorced last year. He was suppose to remove my name from the mortgage by refinancing it. My name was never on the deed. He started the refinancing process and canceled it because he would have to have a survey and appraisal. What can I do. I want to buy house of my own and I can’t with my name still on this loan. What if any can the mortgage company do?

There is NOTHING you can do, other than taking your former spouse to court in an attempt to enforce the terms of the divorce decree. As a real estate broker, I see such agreements more than I want to. Had you had a QUALIFIED divorce attorney, he would never have agreed to such without your ex refinancing the loan BEFORE the divorce was finalized. Sadly, you agreed to something which requires more court actions to enforce.
