Unpaid Marital Debts - After the Divorce

What to do when you are getting calls from a collection agency demanding payment of a debt the divorce court ordered your former spouse to pay?

By now the only solution is citing the former spouse for contempt. Hopefully, you know the former spouse's location and that they are employed.

Always consider the other spouse's ability to pay the debts that you want them to pay. Just because the divorce decree says the other spouse is to pay the debt does not mean that they will or that the creditor will leave you alone.
