What if my spouse does not pay the community debts as ordered in the final decree? Can our creditors force me to pay?

July 30, 2012 Cindy Best

Yes, Arizona Revised Statute 25-318 states that a creditor can collect a marital debt from either spouse, regardless of which spouse is ordered to pay the debt by the court. The innocent spouse then has the right to recover from the obligated spouse. If a party fails to comply with an order to pay debts, the court may enter orders transferring the property of that spouse to compensate the other party.
