When an Ex-Spouse Files for Bankruptcy

Once of the darkest moments in anyone’s financial life is when a debt you are not responsible for shows up on your doorstep because you have co-signed a loan.  this is particularly distasteful when the person you co-signed with was once your spouse and is now your ex-spouse.  The only thing that can make this situation worse is if your spouse is not just defaulting on payments, but goes ahead and files bankruptcy.

When your ex-spouse files bankruptcy, if you hold any credit cards or joint debt with your ex-spouse, the creditors will come straight to you.  If this happens, you will likely end up having to file for bankruptcy as well.
