How to protect myself/assests from lienholders?

Question Details:

About 2 years ago my wife and I used our primary residence as collateral to purchase and renovate a building for business purposes. Since then we are divorcing I will get the primary house (her name will be removed from the deed) and she the business property. The lien on the house still remains as we are not in a position to refinance. My question is can the lien holder (bank) force me to sell in the event she defaults in her business? How can I protect my house? The lien is 249k way too much for me to absorb. Currently, the value of the business property is more than the lien in question.
