Mortgage interest and taxes in year of divorce

Our divorce was final on Dec. 20, 2012. There were no support orders prior to the divorce so no "alimony" paid in the eyes of the IRS in 2012. Ex-Wife and I agreed she would stay in house and make mortgage payments and I would give her money (support) to allow her to stay in the house. This was an agreement we made and honored throughout the balance of 2012. I moved out in May and payments on the mortgage were made via a joint account through May. After May the payments were made by my ex. The divorce decree indicates I can claim 1/2 the property taxes and 1/2 the mortgage interest for the year or until the mortgage was refinanced to remove my name from the mortgage and title. The mortgage was in both of our names throughout 2012 and so was the title. Can I legally claim 1/2 the taxes and interest?
