In Illinois if I stop making payments on a home and my ex wife continues making the payments is she entitled to the home

I divorced and my ex wife continues to live in our house and is supposed to be selling it but keeps delaying the sale claiming issues with the house is there a time limit for the sale?

Your Stipulation of Settlement should have set limits on the sale of the house. Please take a look at it.  As for the payments, the Stip should address that too (who making and for how long) and generally what happens is one party will get a credit from the sale for expenses paid out.  Seek help.  Good luck.
