[quote=“Screaming Jesus”]Thanks, but…you mean ever?
For instance, what if the Mrs goes on a spending spree with her own credit cards. Can’t the creditors go after the Mr.? Would it matter if they co-mingled some assets? What if the Mrs. gave money (or a car, or a house) to the Mr. before declaring bankruptcy? Surely that can’t be allowed…?[/quote]
Legally, if the Mrs has the credit cards under her own name then leaves the country with debt on every card, the Mr is not responsible.
Legally, if the Mrs has a house under her name, then leaves the country with mortgage on the house and the Mr is living in the house, the bank can seize the house (I don’t know the legal term for that). If the Mrs dies and the Mr is the heir and is living in the house with mortgage owing on it, he most likely would sell the house to pay back the bank.
You are not legally responsible for any debt of your ex’s. However, if you are co-signer or such, you will be.
You are not legally responsible for any debt of your ex’s. However, the people your ex owes debts to will most likely come after you and your family via “debt collection agencies.” (Hence you see on the news of harassment, torture, killings, kidnappings, etc.)
