My spouse and I separated 4 months ago. After the separation, he was admitted to several different detox and rehab facilities. I am now being contacted by a bill collector from one of the hospitals because I was listed on the admissions papers as his wife. STBX will not take calls from the bill collector. The collector is telling me that I am responsible for 50% of the bill despite the fact that we were separated before he entered the facility. I am worried that this is going to mess up my excellent credit rating. Does the collector have any grounds to hold me responsible for this bill (I did not admit him into the facility). Can I call the collector and give them his employer information so they can possibly garnish his paycheck for this?
Thank you in advance.
