Hi, thank you for your question. Given that his debt was accrued in his previous marriage it would be considered a debt of that marriage. However, prior to marrying you he should reach a financial settlement with his wife that is approved by the court as if he marries you he loses his right to seek financial relief from his current wife.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
