Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Regarding his debts, how do I prove that I am not responsible for them or did not benefit from them? If I do contact the creditors, won't they try to make me pay them due to being community property? That is what I am afraid of! I believe that he deliberately may have put my name on accounts without my knowledge.
HelloYou have no obligation to contact the creditorsIf your name is XXXXX XXXXX accounts and you have no knowledge and have been separated from him and have no idea where he is that is fraud on his part.
One last question: He is also on SS. Supposedly he has not been able to receive it down in the country where he is. Do I have a legal obligation to receive a portion of his SS amount if he left me with no support at all? I do not know if he also receives a pension amount from his past employer. As far as I know, he is not receiving any monetary amounts where he is now. Thank you for your help in this situation!
