Unfortunately, when it comes to dividing debt between spouses in a Brooklyn divorce, it does happen that debts are assigned to a spouse who didn’t create them.
There are ways to help shield yourself from your spouse’s use of credit cards, though.
First, you should use credit card statements to document what types of spending occurred.
If the debts were run up buying items that were only for use by your spouse, your argument against accepting the debts is much stronger.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you build a case for the most fair and reasonable settlement in your divorce.
