IF the wife gets into credit card debt and has had judgments against her and the business that they owned is in both of there names can they put a lien on that property?
If she was authorized to sign for debt on behalf of the business
then the creditor may be successful if it can prove that in court.
The answer also depends on how the property is titled and how the
business has been set up. You haven't provided enough detail.
Doesn't it have to do with the laws of the state? In Mo the
state is Tenants by the Entirety meaning the husband owns 100% and
the wife owns 100% interest, therefore the property is judgment
proof if only one spouse has the judgment against them. Prperty can
be titled TBE if you live in astste that does not have the same
laws as Mo. Probably a lien could be placed on her half of the
property but not his if there are no Tenant By the Entirety laws or
not set up that way. Not sure about this, but it also seems as if
debt collection attorneys and judges don't care about what the law
says anyhow. I had a judgment go against me from American
Express(supposedly) and I took them to the appellate court (wrong
venue - should have gone the Fed Court for all their FDA
violations- couldn't afford an attorney and did not know what I was
doing) judgment was sustained and now I am being hauled back to
court to be interrogated for their belief I am hiding property
because they couldn't find anything ( might be because I am broke
as is my husband and we don't have anything) Was threatened with
"possible arrest" if I don't show since I am being accused of fraud
now! Scumbag debt collection attorneys - I live in Mo.
