Separation of debt is in divorce papers

Helpful to 1 out of 2 people

There should be a clause in your divorce papers regarding the separation of debt.  Unfortunately if your attorney never included the item in your divorce decree, you may have to request a closure, or removal of you from the account, after the fact.  This can be VERY hard to accomplish sometimes, and worse yet it can end up being extremely expensive if an attorney is needed to step in again.  So first I would ask your ex to close out the accounts or request with you in writing that you be removed as a responsible party.  If he refuses, you may have to try on your own.  However if that fails, you may want to obtain an attorney to follow up.

Please thumbs up if this helps, and look at some of my past answers to help with other credit questions you may still have.
