Credits And Reimbursements

One of the most difficult elements in many divorces is the division of property. Sometimes the division of marital debt can be even harder to figure out. Two important but misunderstood areas related to debt division, credits and reimbursement, go hand in hand.

After two people separate, if one spouse is making payments on a joint debt (sometimes referred to as a community debt), that person is entitled to be reimbursed for 50 percent of what he or she has paid out. This reimbursement usually does not happen automatically, but an experienced divorce attorney can help you receive proper reimbursement in the equitable division of assets and debts.
