Can A Creditor Demand Payment From Me Even When My Divorce Decree Says My Spouse Must Pay off This Loan?
Absolutely. Regardless of what the divorce decree says, the lender is still free to collect from anyone who signed for the loan. The divorce agreement is simply the court ordering which of you should be responsible. The lender, who was never at the hearing to represent itself, is not bound by this decision. While the court has no power over the lender, it still has power over you and your ex-spouse.  So if your ex spouse is not following the court order, get the court to intervene and compel their compliance.
