What Is Marital Debt?
Marital debt may be a debt accumulated by either spouse during the course of the marriage, and often includes:
- Home and real estate mortgages
- Credit card and consumer loan debt
- Medical bills
- Business loans and debt
- Student loans
- Auto loans, boat loans
- IRS/tax obligations
Unfortunately, even if a debt is only in one spouse’s name, if it was accrued during the marriage, it may be a marital debt subject to equitable distribution.
If an underwater house, substantial medical bills or high credit card balances present important debt issues in your divorce, contact the Law Office of Cheryl Bucker, P.A., to protect your interests.
