Joint line of credit with an ex-spouse
May 21st, 2009 by Questions
My ex-husband and I have a joint line of credit that the is unsecured with the bank. He pays it down but the bank refuses to release me from it because without me he does not qualify for the credit. I do because I own a home.
If he should declare bankruptcy, what happens to the account? Will he be removed from it leaving me shouldering this responsibility? He signed in our seperation agreement that he is responsible for payments and getting me off this loan as soon as he is able to, but it doesn`t look like that will happen before the next 5 years.
He uses bankruptcy as a threat, I just want to know if it is a threat that is grounded in fact.
Thank you for your advice.
