In Alaska, the nonliability for premarital or separate debts of other spouse is envisaged in Alaska Stat. § 25.15.050. It reads as:
“Subject to AS 34.77, neither spouse is liable for the debts or liabilities of the other incurred before marriage, and, except as otherwise provided, neither is liable for the separate debts of the other, nor is the rent or income of the property of one spouse liable for the separate debts of the other.”
