HI, I have been going over alot with my spouce who has decided upon divorcing me. We have settled many things as far as who gets what property. The only sticking point so far is she is asking me to pay her past debt.
We lived together for two years before we were married. I made more than her, and charged everything via a visa check card. She however, charged many things on her visa card and now has past debt. Can she ask for money before the day we were married?

In Wisconsin, the debt is presumed marital. It is incumbant upon the party claiming another characteristic to prove it. If you can prove it is her premarital debt, it may be her obligation.
