Reviewing debt division during divorce

Most of the married residents of Rockville may be more than happy to share everything with their spouses. That includes their debts. Yet once people decide to end their marriages, such altruism also often ends with it. One might look as his or her limited role in assuming a liability and question whether or not he or she should be held responsible for it.
