how many can sign

April 3rd, 2008 by Questions

My husband and I have separated and we divided the debt somewhat but he is not taking the responsibility for his debt and I have never missed a payment on my car but have however been late on Sears but do however make a point to pay it. The debt that will go undser this is his debt is their any way that we both can do this and he pay half and I pay half as well?

Depending on which procedure you use to deal with your debts, they can be done “jointly” – in your case though, I don’t think I would suggest that. If you go into a program jointly with your ex (each paying half) and he doesn’t pay then you will either have to make up the difference or the program will be cancelled.

I think in your case, you should be looking at options for you. He should do the same, but given his payment problems I don’t think you should be working together…
