If there is a problem such as collection procedures, that can affect all joint spousal property.

Some states have rather odd laws that might hold a spouse accountable if the debt is related to "living neccessities". These statutes are seldom used by creditors; if cited it is unlikely the plaintiff could provide the necessary proof. (MORE)

What will happen if a illegal immigrant marry a us citizen and divorce before filing for citizenship?
"He/she will have his/her butt kicked out of the country, unless he/she can claim being a victim of domestic abuse or something like that."

You will not get kicked out of the country for no…t being a citizen as long as you have a valid green card. There are plenty of people that live in the United States for their entire lives and never become US Citizens, they must simply renew their green card, and of course stay law abiding. If you've been here for only a couple years and are divorcing an American citizen, there is the possibility of your green card being revoked if you don't have an established work history, kids, etc. If you've been married for more than a few years, five years in particular with a valid green card, then it's extremely unlikely you will be sent back to your home country.
