My husband and I took out many, many student loans when we were younger and stupid. The amount totals almost $200,000. On all of these loans, they are in my name, and he is the cosigner.
Here's the problem. He signed the first few. Anytime after that, he would tell me to just sign his name since he'd read the papers and didn't need to be bothered. He had me sign his name to student loans, mortgage modification paperwork, checks, etc. At the time I thought nothing of it.
Now we're going into divorce. He's turned around and told me that he's going to claim he knew nothing about the student loans and that I forged his signature to the forms, and that he only signed the first few because I lied about what they were.
He told me he's going to make sure I'm sitting in jail and he has custody of our daughter. That kills me because he doesn't want anything to do with her on a day to day basis. He's just trying to hurt me for leaving him.
I'm terrified. I can't sleep at night. My only defense against him is, "he's lying, he told me to do it" I'm not sure how far that is going to get me.
Does anyone know what is the worst that can happen. Will I really be put in jail for this?? I don't know what to do.
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
