Should I settle debts or file divorce?

Submitted by Rebeka Dawn on Sun, 08/13/2017 - 22:41

We live in a community property state. My husband has incurred $40,000 credit card debt and he has no intention to pay it off. I'm getting collection calls everyday. What should I do? Should I try to settle his debts or file divorce? Will I be still responsible for paying off $40,000 after divorce? Dawn

Depends on you.
You'll be still responsible for paying off $40,000 after divorce since creditors have nothing to do with it.
You can settle debts if they have been incurred after marriage.
File for divorce if he is determined to not change his attitude towards money. Why should you suffer?

Yes, it depends on you.
You can opt for a debt settlement program and negotiate with your creditors.
You can file for divorce if you want to, but before that, try again once to make him understand the situation.
