Thanks for your question.


You've obviously got to get in touch with the Court and his creditors to inform them that your partner is imprisoned. If you have any official documentation to prove this, or if you can get hold of any (perhaps from his parents), then you should send this to the Court/creditors.


If you did not guarantee the loan or were named on any of the other agreements to which his debt relate then you will face no personal liability.


If there are any assets of his which you have possession of then these may be at risk and it's possible the bailiffs could attempt to enforce the debts against these, so it really is essential to explain your position to the creditors/Court to avoid the bailiffs attending your property and attempting to seize these goods or any of yours which they may mistake for his.


If this is useful please kindly click accept so that I may be rewarded for my time. It will be gratefully received and you will be free to ask follow up questions.
