Debt Division in Pennsylvania Divorce

How is debt divided in a no fault divorce?

When a couple agrees to divorce, they must determine how their personal debt will be divided once the divorce is finalized. If you and your spouse are entering a Pennsylvania no-fault divorce with debt, there are a few options from which to choose. The easiest way to deal with debts is to pay them off before divorcing; however, we know that most often this is not a possibility. This means that you and your spouse must decide if it would be better to work together to pay off debts after you are separated or to write up a settlement that divides the debts fairly.

If you and your spouse are entering into an uncontested divorce amicably, then working together to repay your creditors may be a good solution. If you and your spouse want to avoid contact after your divorce is finalized, dividing the debts may be more appealing. It is important to note, however, that many creditors, such as credit card companies, are not bound by divorcing couples' debt division agreements. This means that your credit would be negatively affected if your spouse failed to pay the debts, and the creditor could still come after you for repayment.
