Debt Responsibility — Phoenix Lawyer

While many people understand that divorce includes a division of property, many do not realize that the debt of the marriage must be divided as well. This was a less common issue prior to the current recession. Now many couples find themselves living with major debt. The decision of who continues to be responsible for that debt is a major component of the division of property and finances during a divorce.

Some of the most common debt sources include:

  • Underwater mortgages
  • Repossessed vehicles
  • Credit cards
  • Debt to the IRS
  • Medical bills

If the debt was incurred during the course of the marriage, the debt should be equally divided. A skilled and experienced family law attorney can protect you against being held responsible for anything other than an equitable division of your debts.
