We Lived Off Of My Student Loans. Will My Spouse Have To Pay Some Of Them Back In Our Divorce In Brooklyn?

Yes, if you acquired student loan debt during the marriage that was used to pay for household purchases that benefited both of you, then your spouse will likely be ordered to pay their fair share of the debt as part of the divorce settlement.

Similarly, if you used credit card debt to finance expenditures that benefited both of you, then your spouse will likely be assigned a share of the credit card debt.

Evaluating the full financial picture of your marriage, and then making sure that debts and assets are distributed in the fairest way possible, is one of the key tasks for your divorce attorney.
