Mr. Adams is right - if there is equity in the house, get to family/probate court and get an order to sell (you may also want to consider an injunction against your ex prohibiting him from drawing down on the credit line). The order should also adjust what you and your ex receive from the house sale to account for his use of the credit line and his inability to pay you for your interest in the house.
