Can a judgment be executed on joint marital property?
Question Details: I am being sued for an unpaid credit card in my name only. Can a judgment be filed against our joint marital property in Pennsylvania?
Anything owned jointly by a husband and wife can be sought by a winning creditor to pay off a debt. So if the credit card company or its collection agency wins in a lawsuit, they can then go to theh next step, if you don't pay, of either trying to garnish your wages or trying to file a lien vs. some joint property, such as the money in a joint account.
