Anyway, here's your chance to start a thread, post your experiences, and ask some questions about divorce and credit. We only ask one thing:
IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT THE JUDGE OR DIVORCE DECREE SAYS ABOUT WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT. If your name is on an account, the creditors can and will come after you, if your ex drops the ball. This includes CC's, mortgages, auto loans, you name it, and any problems will show up on your credit reports.
You absolutely must get yourself off of any account that lists you as being jointly responsible.
Please confine yourself to just one rant about the ex/ attorney(s)/ judge(s)/ legal system in general.
