When you and your spouse in Tennessee come the decision that you will no longer remain married to each other, it is time to embark on the difficult journey of splitting up your joint lives. There are many layers to this and some of the work involved focuses on separating the two of you financially. If one or both of you have student loan debt remaining from your college days, you might automatically assume that this debt will be assigned to the person who took the loans out. That may happen but it may not.
As explained by Student Loan Hero, if you were already married when the student loans were taken out, that might raise the question about whether the debt was truly for the benefit of only one person or for the benefit of both of you.
