Am I Liable for My Spouse’s Debts?

Yes and no. If your spouse creates debts that are in furtherance of the family; for example, food, clothing, shelter, those kinds of things. Yes, very often, a spouse will be liable for those types of debts. However, if the spouse is doing something that maybe they should not be doing – taking vacations, taking vacations with people they should not be taking vacations with – we will find out about that and you will not be responsible for those debts.
