My husband and I reside in WI. The house we live in and our main family vehicle were bought by him prior to getting married. I have no desire to remain in the house but know that he is not able to afford paying both debts on his income either.
I know Wisconsin is a 50/50 state re: divorce but have been told that since both items were in HIS name before we were married that I am not responsible for those items. I am doubting this, but would be fairly relieved if that was the case.
My concern is that he will end up with a foreclosure and/or a reposession. Will I be responsible for this debt? I am filing for divorce shortly, but have not done so yet. If this would go on my credit report as well I may have to adjust my approach to this situation. I am not trying to "stick it" to him by any means, but both of us living in the same house is not an ideal situation. I certainly could not pay an additional rent on an apartment, day care, utilities and have any significant amount left over to help him out with bills.
I appreciate any information that you could provide. Thank you!
