Are you Responsible for Debt Your Spouse Takes on After Separation but Before Entry of Judgment of Dissolution or Legal Separation?
In some cases yes. If the debts are for necessities of life for either the spouse or support-eligible children then the debts will be confirmed according to need and ability to pay when the debt was incurred. If the debt were for non-necessities, then the spouse who incurred the debt will be responsible. After the entry of judgment of dissolution of marriage, the spouse who incurred the debt will be responsible regardless of whether the marital status has been terminated.
