The answer to this question depends on the terms of your settlement agreement. In most cases, the spouses will agree to split responsibility for bills, debts, mortgage and similar obligations, just as the divide the assets and properties of the marital estate. You should review the settlement agreement with an experienced attorney to ensure that it clearly expresses your understanding of your divorce.
