Dear Fed UP:
It sounds to me like he may be planning on filing for bankruptcy, which would mean that you would either be responsible for all the remaining debt (depending on how it is titled and created) or that you would also have to file for bankruptcy. From all your posts, he sounds like he is being slippery and conniving. My best advice all around is for you to go and see an attorney who will help you to plan for his little planned retreat from the marriage. Best of luck…and yes, everything is going to be all right in the end.
