Legal Question in Credit and Debt Law in Florida

Me and my dad co-own a home in florida. My dad recently lost his job and owes 1-5k between 3 credit cards and 17K on one credit card. If he isn't able to pay all of them, can they put a lien on the property even though its co-owned with me and I'm not involved with his credit card debt?
