I'm going through a divorce. My ex and I both incurred

I'm going through a divorce. My ex and I both incurred significant credit card debt before we actually got married in the pursuit of him going back to school. We were living together, paying bills together, we didn't have a joint account back then, but we transferred money back and forth between our accounts as if we did, and we also both used our credit cards to make ends meet when we had to, purchasing gas, groceries, paying bills when we had to, etc.We subsequently got married and stabilized a little bit financially and made a plan to pay down the debt. We decided we would pay off his credit cards first since he had the highest interest rate, this was all debt incurred before we actually got married. After his cards were all paid off, he left me for a girl he met at school and filed for divorce.Now he's trying to say that my credit card debt isn't his problem (even though it was incurred, just like his that we paid off together while married) and I don't know how to argue this. I paid off his debt because we were treating it as community debt, and now I'm screwed?We live in a community property state.

I am preparing for ADR and likely a divorce trial. My

I am preparing for ADR and likely a divorce trial. My husband during our marriage purchase a trailer with marital funds, but put it in his brothers name, likely due to the divorce being on the horizon. His brother didnt pay anything on it at all. I would like to know if I can assert any claim to it? Can it be considered marital property even though it's in his brothers name? Truly, I'd like the trailer to keep or at least to be able to split the value of it, so I can owe my husband less money for other things....
