Am I Responsible For Spouse’s Student Loans In A Divorce?

Answer: No. Any loan your spouse obtained during marriage for the spouse’s education or training which remains unpaid at the time of dissolution or legal separation must be assigned for payment to the spouse who obtained the education or training and is disregarded in dividing the community estate, so the unpaid loan cannot be included among the community liabilities for purposes of a property division.scale of justice
