As already mentioned, you can send your lender the 3-months back-payments (plus late fees) and return your mortgage loan back into good standing with the lender, thereby stopping the foreclosure altogether. However, if I read between the lines, most divorce proceedings (with children) require one party to pay certain living expenses to the other party and that other party is required to make those payments. So, if your estranged wife is not making those mortgage payments, but is required (by court order) to do so, then you might mention that to your divorce attorney, huh? Seriously doubt that you can force wife plus 3 kids to leave house voluntarily, but you can suggest the lawyers agree for you to make future mortgage payments and reduce your monthly payments to estranged wife. This is clearly outside the realm of REI, but hope it helps anyway.
