    Answered . Your debt will be discharged, but if your spouse's name is on any of the accounts, the creditors can seek payment from him. Hope this perspective helps!

    Answered . The truth is that there are too many variables here to give a complete answer. It depends on what the divorce decree says. It depends on what kind of debt you have, whose name(s) are on it, whether these debt(s) were for "necessities," etc.
