So long as the debt pre-exists the marriage and you sign a pre-nuptial that states that each spouse's debt acquired prior to the marriage is theirs and theirs alone, then they cannot put a lien on the spouse's property, income, or assets.

Expert:  Cedric replied 7 years ago.
Yes, that applies to his company as well, so long as you don't have any ownership stake in it. If you are making separate payments, they won't be effected likewise. You may be able to get it expunged before you have to pay it off it entirely.
