How walking away from home affects exes
March 13th, 2013 by Questions
My ex filed for bankruptcy 7 months ago. We have been separates for 14 months. The bank came after me for money owing on a joint account we shared that had my name on it, and I paid the money owing. At the time of his bankruptcy, my ex did not include his home in the bankruptcy. Now, 7 months later he has decided he is going to hand over the keys and just walk away from the home. My question is how am I going to be impacted by this? Will the bank come after me to pay off the owing amount on his house? It is under his name and only his name. And he owned it for 10 yeara before we met. We are not divorced, only separated.
