There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply,but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Were the debts incurred during the marriage or before?
Ok, I hate to say it, but since TX is a community property state, both spouses are liable for any debts incurred during the marriage, just like they both own any assets acquired..
So you filing BK would relieve you from any further liability, but it would put him on the hook for everything and the creditors could then come after him and his only recourse would be to also file BK or pay the debts, which would kind of defeat the purpose of you filing BK to discharge the debts because he would be using marital assets to pay..
And I don't know how JustAnswer bills customers. I can send the question over to their customer service department if you have billing questions..
I am very sorry that I don’t have better news, but please understand that I do have an ethical and professional obligation to provide customers with legally correct answers based on my knowledge and experience, even when I know the answer doesn’t make the customer happy...
