There is no set amount, obviously the larger the debt the more likely it is the creditor will sue. Such a decisions is usually made on whether or not a judgment could be executed sucessfully. If the debtor is employed in a state that allows wage garnishment or bank account levy then a lawsuit is a viable option for the creditor as those are assets that are fairly easy to attach.

Where there are joint owners a creditor of one can petition the court for a judgment.

You may need to purchase that interest to keep your property ownership close with no third party owning an interest.
