Will I be subjected to any debts my husband acquires if we are informally separated and living apart?

Q: Will I be subjected to any debts my husband acquires if we are informally separated and living apart?

A: Potentially yes. The issue for the creditor is they can, in theory, sue a spouse of a debtor per a legal doctrine called “necessaries.” It’s rarely invoked – but you’re best advised to either file for divorce or legal separation. Schedule a consult with a Westchester Family Law attorney for a full assessment.
