I would love to but under our contract with JA we are not permitted to have any outside communications with JA customers. Everything has to be done through this site. Usually telephone numbers get x'd out. I am not sure how yours came through.


Also need to know what state you reside in.

Kansas Ther is credit card bills and a house in forclosure I signes the house over to him in the divorce
Expert:  Maverick replied 8 years ago.

If you and your ex-spouse are joint holders of those credit cards, you remain just as responsible in the eyes of the issuer as you were before the divorce. This is because you signed a legal contract - and that contract has nothing to do with being married or divorced. As an individual, you are responsible for your contractual obligations even if the judge says those debts now belong to your ex.


If your ex-spouse refuses to take responsibility, the only way that divorce decree will help you with the creditor is if you take him or her to court. In other words you would pay the bills and then have to sue your ex under the terms of the divorce decree to get that money from him.
