Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best
If you mean is the spouse liable to the person who is owed the money - then no.
However if you mean can debts run up after the separation be taken into account is the financial negotiations then yes they can depending on what the money was used for
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
