For this episode, we’re talking about how to handle debts in divorce. There are lots of different kinds of debts and most of us have at least some. The biggest debt most often is the mortgage on the house (which we’ve discussed in a previous episode). Today we are focused on credit cards, IRS debt, car loans, student loans, medical debt, and loans from family members. There are some basic guidelines that apply to all these debts and there are nuances to each of them.

Here to help us figure this out, is my guest Lisa Decker. Lisa is a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA) and author of How To Divorce Your Spouse, Not Your Money. Lisa has an online community, DivorceTown USA ,and is a partner with the Amicable Divorce Network.
