Should we go through with domestic partnership?

New York, NY |

My opposite sex partner and I are planning on becoming domestic partners in the state of NY.However, we have doubt due to lack of knowledge regarding debt liability. Will I be liable for the bad debt of my partner?

Generally, a domestic partner would become liable for a debt if they are a joint debtor. In other words, if a loan agreement or contract included them as liable for the debt.
