Can collection agency sue husband for your debt?

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.

If your husband dies with a judgment against him what should you do with regard to the judgment?

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.

Can a lien be placed against a property which is in tenancy of the entirety but the judgment is against the husband only?

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.
