Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to answer your question.

The spouse whose name is XXXXX XXXXX credit card account would be solely responsible for any of the credit card debt to the credit card issuing bank.

However, in a divorce situation, both spouses would be equally responsible for any marital debt, but that would only play role when dividing the marital assets and debts and regardless of what the family court decides with the debt, the spouse whose name is XXXXX XXXXX accounts is still be the only one that is legally liable to the debt to the creditor.
