Creditors harassing You After A Divorce?

  • What happens to community (joint) debt after a divorce? Unfortunately, community debt – debt created by one or both spouses during their marriage – does not melt away like a snowball after a marriage ends. Creditors can do whatever they want, as the court cannot regulate creditors if they did not participate in the divorce in the first place. More often than not, creditors will be asking one of the spouses to pay off community debt even if there is a court order clearly stating that this spouse is no longer responsible for this particular debt.

    In our lifetime, we do not get divorced that often, which is why the vast majority of people in the United States still have plenty of misconceptions about joint debt. The Fort Lauderdale divorce attorney Gustavo E. Frances is going to outline some of the most common ones. Find out your best legal options by contacting the Law Office of Gustavo E. Frances, P.A.
