Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Please be patient while I research and compose a reply for you.
While your spouse is not liable for what you did, the Federal government can step in and seize assets in both of your names as well as property of your spouse that they have reason to believe was purchased with money earned from your illegal gains.
So yes, your payments can be revalued on the basis of your husband's income. How far the government will pursue this matter remains to be seen but if they appear insistent you may want to engage local counsel.
Just checking in to see if you need more help or any clarification of my answer. If so, please reply here on this question thread.
