A quiet title action is not the solution to your problem. The solution is to move forward on your divorce. The divorce agreement will address the disposition of the property, along with all the other marital assets.
In the meantime, you really don’t have an alternative to making the payment…the loan is in your name, and if it isn’t paid, your credit will be damaged.
It’s possible that your attorney could use the fact that your wife stopped making payments as a bargaining tool to extract a reduced payoff for her on the property. But again, the divorce settlement will take into account all of your assets and debts, not just this one.
In my opinion the best solution is to move forward on your divorce as quickly as possible. If you do get an offer the next problem is likely to be how the money is distributed…something that should also be addressed in the divorce agreement.
