Can My Spouse Be Pursued for My Debts?
For those who are married and in debt, the question of whether or not their spouse can be pursued for debts incurred by them is an important one. While there are laws that protect spouses from being held responsible for the debts of their partner, there are certain situations in which a creditor may pursue both parties for payment.
The level of protection available to spouses depends largely on each individual state's laws and also on the type of debt involved. In some states, such as California or Arizona, a spouse is protected from being pursued by creditors regarding most types of consumer debt incurred before marriage. However, if a couple took out joint credit accounts or loans together after they were married, then both partners will be liable for repayment.
