Division of Marital Property
Debts are also included in any property settlement agreement and the parties should agree as to who is taking what property and who is assuming what debt.
Remember that third party creditors are not bound by the property settlement agreement!
In other words, even if husband takes credit cards A, B & C and wife takes credit cards X, Y & Z and the accumulated balances on those credit cards, in the event of a non payment, the credit card company still has the right to come back against both parties provided those debts were incurred during their marriage. The property settlement agreement is not binding on third party creditors.
