Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Unfortunately, your credit card company is not required to remove your name and the family law court cannot force the creditor to do so as it has no jurisdiction over the creditor. BUT, if your ex has violated to order, failed to pay, failed to pay the debt off within a specified time, etc., then you could file to hold him in contempt.
If he is making payments as required, but is just driving the balances up higher and higher - - which in turn is destroying your credit - - you could file a motion with the court and ask the judge to order your ex to re-finance the debt/transfer the debt to another account that is in his name only.
That's really the simplest solution for you in order to remove your name from the debt and have it placed squarely on his shoulders.........so that'd be the best place to start.
