Hi Mollie,

When I purchased a computer in June, my husband wasn't with me, but I wanted him on the credit card I was getting. The girl told me that was okay to sign his name since we were married. When I filed for bankruptcy, he became responsible for the payments because I'd put him on the card. He asked the company if I was legally allowed to sign his name, and we were told yes because we're married.

I'm sorry you're going through this, but I think you're going to be okay. You didn't do anything wrong.

Good luck!

Hi Mollie,

First, your husband may have been setting you up by telling you to forge his name on checks (planning to use it to scare you later).

Second, almost every spouse pulls this in some form or another. Mine said he was going to file charges against me for using a credit card that had his name on it.

My attorney's advice was this: If the funds were used for the good of the family, and the spouse benefitted from those goods, you're fine. Now, if you signed his name, cashed his check and the money simply disappeared, that's one thing. But, putting it in a joint account and then paying the bills and buying groceries with it....any judge would see right through your husband's threats.

Kind of stupid on his part. How does he think you go the checks? From his employer? Everyone will know that he gave you his paychecks.

Your spouse is a control-freak and a jerk. >:(

Hugs,
Angela

I recieved my divorce papers after i fled for survival. I stayed with this man through two massive heart attacks and all the financial frustrations. I worked two jobs to save our home and all. After i got all in control he started mentally and emotionally abusing me. Now he is trying to take all assetts home and drag me to the coals. Just because I would not let him control and manipulate me. He has coerced me and you name it. Made up lies and has turned my kids against me. He got me when I had a medical problem and off work. Now I have no amunition to fight him with. I cant afford a lawyer and I will soon be homeless if he has anything to do with it. He tricked me into signing papers to fix the house. He got a mortgage against the house and took money from his retirement funds. He took all my possessions and put it in storage. If i dont pay the storage bill they will be gone. Plus he tore the house up. I wish him no ill will but all this is taking its toll on me.[quote][/quote]

Hello

My name is Amy and I'm new to this forum, but I read your posting and wanted to let you know about a great new book I just finished reading that I think might help you with what you're going through. The book is available at howtodivorce.org I hope this helps you.

Love,

Amy

P.S. The authors were on oprah and dr. phil, so they know what they're talking about. This book really changed my life. Good luck.
