Can you take your ex spouse to small claims if the dissolution stated "no shared debt"?
My ex-wife and I had a dissolution recently and on our paperwork we filed that we had no debt between us.
After the dissolution was final I received a notice in the mail from a collections agency for the two of us. This debt was in reference to the last apartment that we shared while being married and were both on the lease, apparently we owed them one more months rent.
I discussed this bill with her and she verbally agreed to pay me half of it if I paid it all off so that she would have clear credit to move into a new place that she was trying to get. For almost 3 months she kept putting it off but still telling me that she was going to pay it when she got the money.
Since then, she has changed her phone number, moved, and blocked me from contacting her via email.
So my question is: Am I able to take her to small claims court for this debt even though our dissolution states that we had no debt together?
