You'll have to have the court settle the debts and who owns what debt. After that (or if you agreed on who owns which debt(s), you have to contact the creditors as well. Also, for the love of all that is holy, be kind and inform the other spouse and sort it all out before you start splitting things like cards, because things can get real ugly, real quickly if you don't.

Another bit of advice: when you start removing your ex-spouse as the authorized user on a card, your credit limit on that card will likely drop from 25% to 50% or more, depending on who had what kind of income.

PS: You cannot remove the fact that he lived there, but you can inform any collectors that you are not responsible for his debts, inform them he no longer lives there, and provide the court case # if they need proof.

I am not sure how Crdit Karma works in these regards.  You may need to get another e-mail adress, you can easily get a free e-mail adress, and open up a new CK account with that.  I do see where you can cancel an account, so cancle this one now, and open a new one. you may have to wait 6 months.  The 6 month waiting period is for the same person with the same e-mail, I am not sure how it would work with different person, but old e-mail.

This was all found in the "Profile and Settings" in their help section
