Can someone that is using my husband come after our joint bank account?
1 attorney answer
Although you are not liable for your husband's obligations, your joint account is at risk. Do not deposit your future funds in the joint account. As for taking your husband off the joint account, that action may, in the event your husband is not able to pay his obligations, be challenged as a "fraudulent transfer." The legal remedy in the event a transfer is found to be fraudulent is a reversal of the challenged transfer.
