Hello and thank you for the question. I am sorry to read of this dilemma.Was this debt incurred during the marriage. If so they can pursue accounts in both names, even if name taken off. If predates marriage, cannot reach it. Best practically to keep accounts apart as creditors usually dont pursue accounts in spouse name only.
