Hi - my name is Chris and I'm a Bankruptcy and Consumer Protection attorney here to assist you.
There is no community debt in non-community property states.
It does not matter that the debt was incurred in a community property state.
If both spouses signed for the account, the debt is a 'joint' debt.
Just to confirm: it does not matter that the credit card account was opened in a community property state. If the account holders move outside of the community property state to a non-community property state, the debt is no longer considered "community debt", and the non-filing spouse is still liable for the debt.
That is correct.
Thank you! I appreciate your help!
