Charged for Debts your Spouse Ran Up?

  • If you are considering divorce, did you know that Utah law means you can be held liable for their debt? It’s not unusual for people to mistakenly believe that, as their spouse’s debts were run up in their own name, the other spouse has absolutely no responsibility. In Utah at least, this is entirely untrue, as, under state law, creditors can sue both spouses for any debts which were incurred during the marriage, with the sole exception of student debt. However, there are some aspects of the wording of that law that could be used to prove you are not, after all, liable for half of the debt.
