What About Debts?

What Do You Owe and How Much Do You Know?

Debt can be a significant source of conflict between spouses. Sound divorce planning requires that you (1) find out what you owe, and (2) pay attention to your credit. It is as important in divorce to disentangle responsibility for debt as it is to divide property.

Your spouse may be one of those people who can’t resist spending. As with any other addiction, the true extent of the debt may have been hidden from you.
