Welcome to Just Answer
I am a Solicitor and will assist you.
I am sorry to hear what is happening.
First thing it is important that you know that the mortgage company is not bound by any court order between you and your ex husband in relation to the matrimonial finances. If your mortgage is in joint names then the mortgage company can pursue either of you for a short fall.
Hopefully your court order would have included an indemnity clause which means that if you do have to pay anything then you can make a claim against your husband for anything you have to pay - but this is only going to work if he has the means to pay you back, but if he does still have a share of the house you can use that as an asset to get your monies back.
You already have a court order in place that says he should pay the mortgage so you can enforce this against him. The good thing about family court orders is that you do not need to make various different types of applications depending on what assets or income he may have but you can make one application and the court will enforce it for you the best way that it can. This is the form that you need:
The court fee for this type of application is £50.
You send the application to the court once completed. Detail the order that you have and how he is in arrears with the mortgage payments.
In relation to speaking to the mortgage company, you can tell them about the court order and how payments have not been paid in accordance with that order. You can explain you are seeking to enforce the payments. Hopefully they will be understanding in the circumstances for you.
