Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today.
Hi! I'm going to answer your questions below, as best as I can, but please feel free to ask any follow ups or to attach the documents.
Will it obligate me to pay this if he doesn't ...?
It depends on what the papers say. You can post them here and I'll take a look as long as there aren't too many or you can go to a local attorney to review the papers.
Just signing any papers wouldn't make you responsible, there would have to be specific language in there to do that.
As to you being obligated by death or divorce, if the papers say that then you would be, otherwise the obligation will be assigned to him in the case of a divorce or will be an obligation of his estate in the event of his death.
If your question has been answered then I'd offer my best wishes to you and ask that you please not forget to leave a Positive Rating so I receive credit for my work. Of course, please feel free to ask any follow up questions in this thread. I want to be sure that all of your questions are answered.
You're very welcome. There will be just a sentence or two to watch for but there are a zillion different ways to word it so you have to be careful. Without those sentences the lender won't be able to pursue you.
