Hello and thank you for allowing me to address your legal question.
I wish I had good news for you, but unfortunately I do not. Although a divorce judge can divide property and debts between spouses, he cannot remove a spouse’s liability to a creditor. In other words, the divorce judge can order your ex to pay the timeshare fees, and if your husband does not, you can ask the judge to find your ex in contempt, and you can even sue your ex. However, that does not relieve you of the responsibility to the timeshare company. The timeshare company can go after anybody who agreed to be liable (which you agreed to at some point), and then the burden is on you to go after your ex for ignoring the divorce decree.
I really wish I had better news for you.
If the information that I provided was helpful, please remember to ACCEPT my post as that is the only way I will receive credit and compensation for my answer. Thank you and good luck!
