I have spoken to financial attorneys about this and have asked online several times and I always get the same answer...NO he will not be responsible for my past student loan debt, nor will they garnish his wages or attach his checking or savings account. I was told that if we keep separate accounts and do not co-mingle our money, then he (and his inheritance from his dad ) will be untouchable. He thinks they(lenders and IRS) will wonder how I am paying my monthly bills since I do not work and go looking for the source of any money I deposit in my ckng acct. How do I convince him that he will be safe from this?? I've told him the whole California community law thing and he still does not believe me. Willing to make appt so this is settled!!I have read him all the answers here, he says I left out information,here goes.. 1) He has supported me for the last 7 years, after I lost my business and filed BK. 2) He pays the rent, auto ins, food etc. 3) I am on his auto insurance which somehow he feels will cause them to come after him,(??) 4) He writes me checks for the money I deposit in my acct. in which i pay some of the bills with (utilities and my credit card bills) OK SO I GUESS ALL YOUR ANSWERS GOT TO HIM, I AM NOW PLANNING A SMALL WEDDING IN DECEMBER!! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!! YAY!!!!
