Orlando Divorce and Debt Lawyer

No one plans to get behind in paying bills. Individuals going through the divorce process can especially be caught unaware by their spouse’s mounting credit card bills.

When it comes to Orlando divorce and debt, a judge can issue an order regarding equitable distribution of the debt. But the courts are unfortunately limited in making an ex-spouse pay his or her portion of marital debt after the divorce is finalized. This happens to the detriment of the other spouse.

A common example of marital debt is credit card debt. Credit card companies are not interested in someone’s divorce decree. They are going to enforce their signed credit card agreement. In the case of a joint credit card account, when a spouse who was assigned by the divorce court to pay the marital credit card debt fails to pay, the other spouse is fair game to the creditor to hold responsible for payment.

Credit Card Debt after Divorce

High credit card debt is all too common for couples facing divorce. Equitably distributing credit card debt does not mean the debt is split down the middle. Instead, a judge divides marital property and debt in what appears to give each party a fair share of benefit and obligation. The court will consider the financial situation of each spouse, contributions by each partner during the marriage, how long they were married and the best interests of the children.

Although credit card debt accrued during marriage may be either split or assigned to one spouse, both ex-spouses are accountable for payment if the debt falls into default. Creditors are not bound by any Florida divorce decree, and therefore credit card companies will still hold you responsible for your spouse’s debt if it is a joint account. If you are unable to pay, this can wind up severely damaging your credit ratings. For this reason, it is imperative to terminate all joint accounts as soon as you realize you are going to file for divorce.

Bankruptcy after Divorce

Many times, divorce is a result of financial problems. It is not uncommon for an ex-spouse to file for bankruptcy after a divorce, as unexpected or unmanageable debt becomes overwhelming. Bankruptcy may discharge the bulk of certain debt completely. At Kramer Law, we have vast experience in family law and we are also bankruptcy attorneys. The benefit for the clients we represent in divorce is that we prepare them for and protect them from what could come should bankruptcy or other serious debt arise.
