If I signed a quit claim for my house in my divorce, legally is there anything I can do to get my name off the mortgage?

I didn’t realize that my name would remain on the mortgage and effect my credit for years to come.

Unfortunately for you the only way you can get your name off of the mortgage of the home that you signed a quitclaim to is to have the loan refinanced by the owner or have the unit sold. Mortgage companies simply do not take people's names off a mortgage any other way.
