YES, if they get a judgment against you, garnishment is next.
If the title to real property is vested in a entireties estate, a money judgment would only attach if it is against BOTH the husband and the wife UNLESS the judgment is a Federal Tax Lien.

In this case, a wife is not responsible for a judgment made against the husband prior to the marriage. She may want to help clear up this date in case there are joint credit situations.

Anybody can sue anybody for anything...However, unless you live in a community property state, your husband is not liable for any debt that he did not sign up for.IMPORTANT: if a creditor or collection agency does commence any legal action against your husband who is not legally a party to the debt, then your husband will have to defend himself otherwise the creditor can obtain a default judgment against your husband.A default judgment can happen if your husband fails to answer the law suit.The court will simply find your husband in default for failure to respond and enter a judgment against him in favor of the creditor.The creditor can then begin to garnish earnings or attach any other assets that can be located.If your husband is not legally obligated to pay the debt, then the best first thing to do is to send the collection agency a letter and communicate that fact to them.The above information should not be construed as offering legal advice.
If both persons were sued and a judgment awarded but only the husband filed bankruptcy and included the debt; the judgment can still be executed against any non-exempt property belonging to the wife and perhaps jointly owned property as well. The legal presumption is that the debt is still owed because it was jointly incurred.
Yes in most cases there will be a consequence. The spouse is considered to have benefited from the assets of the other.

The husband and wife are seen as one person in the eyes of the court. If the husband incurs a debt, the wife shares it. They should not be able to take your home, unless that was the collateral for whatever the case was about.
If there is a default judgment against you, you will be responsible for the charges. Your wages could be garnished if you do not pay or set up a payment arrangement.
No. Florida has the reputation of being a "debtor friendly state". In this case debts incurred before marriage cannot be applied to both spouses.
A judgment passed by a court in favour or against in any given type of case which never happened can become a Precedent. a Precedent is a reference judgment or case. For example: Transfer of petition in favour of husband never happened until very recently in the case of Dipankar Ghosh Vs Moukhi Dutta. Now this judgment of the supreme court will serve as a precedent on future Transfer of petition filed by husband in future cases
Depends on the following: What was the judgment in question? Were you legally married/seperated/divorced/single at the time in question? Was the return filed jointly or seperately? I am afraid I cannot offer any other info without specifics.
Does the car hava a lien with a bank with your husbands name on it?
You would need to bring a court action against him and obtain a judgment in your favor. The judgment lien can then be recorded in the land records and your ex-husband couldn't refinance or sell the property unless he paid the lien.
Debts of a deceased person are addressed during probate procedure. All lenders are required to file a claim against the estate through the state's probate court. All US states have laws of succession (the manner in which an estate is distributed) with the surviving spouse and minor children being the first to be provided for. If the judgment is against the deceased spouse only and the married couple were not residents of a community property state the surviving spouse is not legally responsible for the judgment debt and it can be voided by the probate court or the surviving spouse. In some cases, no legal action is needed, the judgment becomes null and void upon the death of the debtor.

No. In most states that allow property ownership as "tenants in their entirety", a lien can only be placed against a property if all owners of record are included in the judgment. However, laws vary and most creditors will record the lien "just in case" the tenancy changes. The tenancy by the entirety could be broken by a death or divorce or if one partner conveys their interest to the other.
He loves you, but doesn't respect you.
