Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question...
Can the landlord come after my community property assets?
No, because you can't legally pledge community property assets without the consent of your spouse. Each of you owns an undivided one half interest so both of you would have to agree to pledge them as collateral for any debt.
I am not sure what "potential future separate assets" would be.. Assets are either separate or community property...
So if you are talking about community property currently but you get divorced and then it is your separate property, then yes, it would then be separate property and open to the landlord pursuing it..
So if I might inherit property in the future, can they go after that? How long can the landlord go after me?
Yes, inherited property is your separate property. How long depends on when you breach the contract. They have 4 years from the date of the breach to sue you for it.
