Can a husband be asked to pay his wife’s debt out of the rent he receives from a property acquired before marriage?
I’ve gotta house in Kansas, which was gifted to me by my granny. I rented that house a month before I got married. Can the court ask me to pay my wife’s debt out of the rent I receive from the said property?02/20/2017 | Category: Marriage » Marital Prop... | State: Kansas | #32501
K.S.A. § 23-2601 reads:
“The property, real and personal, which any person in this state may own at the time of the person's marriage, and the rents, issues, profits or proceeds thereof, and any real, personal or mixed property which shall come to a person by descent, devise or bequest, and the rents, issues, profits or proceeds thereof, or by gift from any person, shall remain the person's sole and separate property, notwithstanding the marriage, and not be subject to the disposal of the person's spouse or liable for the spouse's debts, except as provided in K.S.A. 33-101 et seq. and 33-201 et seq., and amendments thereto.”
