Good Afternoon

Thank you for your question. To Introduce myself I am a sydney based Solicitor and will do my best to provide you with relevant information to assist you.

You have to cancel the supplementary card so that she cannot use it any more and you are going to have to threaten her with legal action and sue her for the money.

You are liable for the credit card debt but in order for you to get her to pay it you will need a court order.

Does she have any assets?
