Re: Collectors contacting current in-laws about ex's debts

Are any of these debts left over from when you were married? Even if you weren't listed as a joint owner of the card/ loan/ debt, you might still be liable, depending on the laws in your state.
Otherwise, the way that they've found out these addresses is through the chain pf addresses on credit reports of ex-wife --> you --> current wife --> her parents. It doesn't mean that they're liable, but all these previous addresses and shared names and old history can be found with stubborn searching.
