Experienced Legal Assistance for Financial Matters in Divorce
Creditors are typically uninterested in how property and bills are split during a divorce and are not legally bound by a final divorce judgment. If one spouse does not follow the order properly, such as refusing to pay the debts allocated to him or her, there may be several potential problems that can arise. There are steps that you can take to help keep a divorce from ruining your credit.
Make sure all of your bills are being paid on time, and if possible, settle with any creditors in order to close those accounts. If you and your spouse have joint accounts, close those accounts before separating, in order to prevent use on the account and running up charges that you will later be held responsible for paying.
It also important to create a realistic budget, assess your obligations and determine how joint debts will be paid.
