This is general information and not legal advice. No attorney-client relationship is formed. This is for educational purposes only.

It will be very important for you to bring up your wife opening credit cards in your name, and identifying whose name is ***** ***** utility and car loan documents. While you each share an equal responsibility to pay marital debts, the companies will come after whoever's name is ***** ***** account.

Does that make sense?

Have you started working on the financial documents for uncontested divorce? They're a pretty good organizing tool for setting out what are the assets & debts and income & expenses of the marriage, and will help structure your analysis.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
