Unfortunately, you ex-husband has to refinance the mortgage in his name only to get your name off the Deed/Mortgage.  No other way around it as far as I know.  Divorce papers only work in certain situations.  Since both of you qualified for the mortgage in the beginning, the mortgage company will not simply remove your name because of the divorce.  Re-fi is pretty much only thing that can get you off the note.  Sorry it is not better news.  I wish divorce attorneys would explain that to folks when the file, it is something I see every week in my job with a mortgage company.
