The house had been foreclosed on and husband no longer owns it. The bank made me sign for the equity loan since he was married. He owes 100,000 on equity loan and has no idea if they are coming after him or not for it. He may file bankruptcy. We are now getting a divorce and husband says i am liable for half the loan and wants to use that as bargaining issue in divorce. Am I liable for the loan on a house that was my husband's personal property? I do not think it was right for the bank to make me sign but at the time i didnt question it, now i wish i did.
