Q+A: Being Sued for Spouse’s Credit Card Debt

Q: I”m being sued by collection agency regarding my ex husbands debt. Should I retain an Attorney?

A: The short answer would be ‘No’ if the debt really belonged exclusively to your ex. In all likelihood however, the credit card in question must have included your name as an authorized signatory or co-debtor. In any event, you should take such a lawsuit seriously – under no circumstances should you ignore any suit in which you are named as a defendant (whether correctly or incorrectly).
