What Is A Community Debt?

A community debt is, by and large, any debt created by either or both spouses while they were married. Community creditors generally look to both spouses to pay community debts, but the creditor is within his rights to ask only one spouse to pay the whole community debt. It is the right of the creditor to demand payment from only one spouse that creates a good deal of confusion for divorced husbands and wives.
