The only debt that is divided in a property distribution trial is the debt incurred for the “benefit of the marriage”. There is no case law directly on point regarding your situation but I can easily imagine a judge finding that the debt was not for the benefit of the marriage. An alientation action against the in-laws would not likely be successful.
