"How soon should I get a lawyer"
I suggest you can wait until you are served with a Complaint. At that time you should consider consulting with a local attorney. If you need to find one, I suggest you can use the NY Bar Association Legal Referral Service. Here is the contact information
Can my wife be held responsible for student loans incurred by me during our marriage?
Marital debt is subject to "equitable distribution" as are marital assets under NY Law
That means, if only you benefited from the school loans then a court will put those debts in your column not to be shared.
If it was a joint decision for you to have the school debt and you both benefited in some way, then a court may hold each accountable. Its arguable either wayIf you have other questions, you may reply here and I will continue to assist you. Otherwise, please rate "good to excellent" ~ Thanks and good luck
