I Was in a 6 Year Relationship and Put All the Debt in My Name. – Sally

“Dear Steve,

I was in a 6 year relationship…I am in debt $10000 from it… I had all the ccs so we used them for everything….from food, gas, clothes, trips and we moved to tennessee from Mi and he kicked my son and I out after 5 months

Is he responsible for any of the debt or is it all me?


Dear Sally,

Unfortunately it’s your debt if it is in your name.

You could always attempt to sue him to recover his identifiable part of the debt but that does not erase your responsibility for the debt.

In situations like this, that often happen after divorce or separation, bankruptcy is a logical solution to discharge the debt and give you a clean break so you can move on with your life. Click here to find a local bankruptcy attorney if you don’t know of one already.

Please update me on your progress by posting updates here in the comments section of your question. I’m very interested in how this works out for you.
