My Ex-Husband Wants Me to Pay a Loan We Had. – Angela

“Dear Steve,

We were divorced about 2 years ago. I left him. He has everything. The house and all it’s contents. By the way house is still in my name. The truck he drives is still in both our names. He changed the locks on the house 3 days after I left so I was not able to get my personal belongings. He wont let me have my jewelry or anything for that matter. Now I received papers saying he was taking me to court and suing me for a loan we made together while married. The loan is the reason that he refuses to give me my jewelry. He said if I didnt pay on the loan he wouldnt let me have my jewelry. Ok so he has the jewelry and now wants me to pay the loan. We never had a property settlement just a quick easy divorce which is not so easy afterall. He is living with his girlfriend and someone else is living in the house and paying him rent. He did not want me to know this. Why? Is it because he knows that he is doing wrong?HELP ME PLEASE. thanks so much

The Answer

Dear Angela,

I offer this not as a direct way to get revenge, but as a good way to close the door so you can move on with your life.

If you decide to file bankruptcy, he would become the sole party responsible for any joint debt.

Otherwise, this is going to turn into a long and probably drawn out legal mess where only the attorneys will win from legal fees.

I’d suggest you click here to find a local bankruptcy attorney to learn more about what bankruptcy would mean for you.

Please post your responses and follow-up messages to me on this in the comments section below.

Big Hug!
