The debts are his debts and can be resolved often by negotiation or having a local lawyer handle it for him.  Site rules do not permit us to take on cases. Here, I wish I could. I can offer resources for hiring counsel locally, often on commission or pro bono basis. I would be happy to share that information with you. Please let me know if that would help.

Customer
He is not doing anything to try to solve the debts, will he be arrested? will the court ask me to pay for him?

Licensed could be revoked and the car seized.  I do not envision a claim against you.

I appreciate how hard this must be.

I hope my answer is fast and clear. Please let me know if you have a follow up question and I will be happy to answer it.

Customer

Marital debts can be pursued against both, but typically will settle long before that happens.

I am sorry to be bearer of bad news. Sometimes I have to deliver bad news where the law is not favorable. I hope you appreciate that and not hold it against me. I owe it to you to answer truthfully even if the news is not good news.

Customer
I'm not sure if I understand, do I have to pay for his credit card debts?

Infolawyer, Expert

Those debts can be pursued against you but often are not and resolved before that happens.

Customer
how will it be resolved if he's not doing anything? what can I do?

The creditor will often end up securing a judgment, levy on his bank accounts and collecting from there.

Customer
when will be the situation they will come to me?

Its not likely but theoretically possible if they dont find assets in his name.

I wish you the best. You are welcome to follow up on the answer as needed and keep me posted.
