For many divorcing couples, at least one if not both spouses have student loan debt. What happens to that debt in the divorce process?
Divorcing spouses are entitled to divide credit card debt between them however they jointly see fit. Where they can’t agree, a court will engage in the same inquiry it does for any other type of debt.
Most homeowners have debt associated with their home, usually in the form of a mortgage and/or a home equity line of credit. In a divorce process, this is often the largest marital debt on the table.
