Depends on if your state is a community property state. If you did not sign up on the card then it is most likely not your debt.

Are we talking about divorce? or are you asking in general? If we are NOT talking about divorce/separation: If the credit cards were opened with her SSN only, no! The only way you would really be involved would be if the creditor tried to put a lien on jointly held assets for example. If we are talking about divorce, that's a whole different issue as it applies to the "settlement". In this case you want to consult an attorney. Every state is different.

It depends on what state you are in, some states are considered community property states, which mean her debt becomes yours. I know for example California is a community property state, and Georgia is not. My debt that I had prior to marriage, my husband didn't inherit it because we are not in a community property state. Edit: Since she is being taken to court over it, they can put a lien on joint assets.

legally no. The problem is you took her for better or worse didn't you? So in a short answer yes as she is now part of you

They aren't attached to her name, the are attached to her social security number. Since she is going to court over these, they can attach a lien to anything with her name on - including joint assets. They can also go after any savings, checking, or other banking accounts that her name is on.

Yes, spouses will be asked to pay, what name they used is irrelevant.
