Going through a divorce can be an emotional and stressful time, but adding financial issues to the process can make it more overwhelming. Typically during a divorce and after a divorce, communication breaks down or ends all together, past debt can come back to you regardless of divorce agreements.

Your ex-spouse may declare bankruptcy after your divorce although an agreement was made creditors may hold you accountable for paying the debt in full.
