Ex files for bankruptcy, do I assume her half of the debt?
May 21st, 2013 by Questions
My ex wife just advised me that she is filing for bankruptcy. How will this affect me? We co own a rental house and have a joint line of credit and a bank account that it currently in overdraft. In our divorce agreement it was stipulated that the house cost (morgage, insurance etc) and line of credit dept would be equally split. The overdraft account is her account and I was just an authorized user. She is telling me that I will now be 100% responsible for this dept…is this possible? What are my rights and what can I do to protect myself?
