Question: Can the courts still hold me liable if in my divorce decree I am to be held harmless of the judgments on my credit that my husband is responsible for? I went through a divorce in 2010. My ex husband is to be responsible for certain judgments. I recently sent a copy of that paperwork to all 3 credit bureaus and all of them deleted those judgments from my credit.

Answer: You can be held liable. A divorce decree or separation agreement deals with the liability of spouses between themselves. If a creditor extended credit to both of you, it can hold both of you liable regardless of such agreements/ decrees.
