Will my ex filing bankruptcy remove a lien off the house?

My ex and I divorced over 2 years ago and I am to refinance the house. When the title search was run it showed a lien from his credit card company. Will him filing bankruptcy remove/dissolve the lien?

Good question. Assuming the lien on your home results from a judgment solely against your "ex", his filing for bankruptcy protection could depending upon the type of filing eliminate the lien assuming there is an actual discharge. A key issue is for the "ex" to list the creditor who placed the lien on your property on the bankruptcy schedule as a creditor.

I recommend that you consult with a bankruptcy attorney further on this subject.
