As context: Since separating I have run up a credit card debt and have some outstanding tax to pay (probably similar to many husbands)This is in large part due to me paying all the ongoing bills at the former marital home and for my new rental property. I pay off the monthly amount of one credit card that is in both our names but only my wife uses.
The card with the debt has been used to pay for things for myself but also for my 2 children and for example insurance for the car my wife drives (the car is in my name)
My question: as part of the asset split of a divorce is this credit card debt looked at as joint debt (as it has grown through expenditure on myself, my wife and 2 children since our separation) or am I solely liable?
As well, I owe some income tax and again this is in large part due to the fact I am paying every bill. Is the outstanding tax solely my responsibility or is it seen as being a shared debt? Thanks for replies
