In California, my girlfriend is on a mortgage with her ex-husband. In the divorce, she agreed that the property was his, but her name remained on the loan. Later, the ex-husband re-financed the house and she signed those loan documents also after being pressured by her ex (He refused to allow her legal visitation at the time of child-handoff until she signed them. I recall the incident as should her lawyer who told her to go ahead and sign the papers). I feel like she got bad legal advice at the time and wonder if the ex-husband's behavior doesn't amount to extortion. She wants to get her name off of the loan. Is that possible and if so, what field should the new potential lawyer specialize in?
