    Default Can Creditors Pursue Ex-Spouse For Debts After Bankruptcy

    Here is something I am wondering about. We got divorced a few months ago. We both had a house in our name, and sold it last month. I received most of the equity because I originally put it in. She is now filing for bankruptcy.

    Will any of her creditors such as the credit card companies that were in her name come back after me since the house was sold earlier and I received most of the profits?

    Default Settlement of Divorce

    If the creditors believe that the award to you constitutes a fraudulent conveyance under the laws of your state, they may seek relief against the settlement. It seems unlikely, given that a judge approved the divorce order at least after nominal review to ensure that it was fair and equitable.
