Can I be forced to get a job, can my wife's money in my account be taken?
by Jason B.
My wife is mentally ill and on disability, she has severe bi-polar disease. Several years ago while manic, she charged up a lot of money on a credit card in MY name. Now they are taking us to court to attempt to collect. I have not worked in a couple years due to her disability. We also have a 6 year old with autism who collects SSI. Both of their checks are automatically deposited in my bank account.
Can the judge force me to work to pay the debt? Can the judge take my paid car? and can the judge take money out of my bank account if the only money in there is my wife's disability and my son's SSI?
We are located in Wisconsin if this at all helps answer the questions.
