    Can the husband be responsible for wife's debt?

    [email protected] (CR) wrote in message news:<[email protected] com>...
    Can I be responsible for my wife's debt, if I didn't sign anything? For example if she opens up a credit card, with just her name, can I be held responsible? I checked into this before I got married and 3 sources told me I can't be held responsible, an attorney, a well known radio talk show host, and Visa. Now I'm hearing that since the state I live in (Alabama) is a community property state, I am responsible and they can garnish my wages. Is this true?
    Alabama is NOT a community property state! The following are:

    Arizona
    California
    Idaho
    Louisiana
    Nevada
    New Mexico
    Texas
    Washington
    Wisconsin
