Re: go after husband

Just being married doesn't make your husband liable for the debts: he would have to have co - signed the debt. If he co - signed, the creditor could seek to recover the money from him. If not, he is not liable. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at 513-621-2201 (Cincinnati number)
