Like partners, you are responsible for the actions of your other half. If she gets into a car accident and doesn’t have the money to pay for the damages, the other party can collect from you. If she signs up for a new cell phone carrier and doesn’t pay, that bill goes to you. If she starts her own business and is forced to declare bankruptcy, you’ll be drawn into the proceedings as well. As a general rule, the only place that the liability train doesn’t take you is into criminal court. In other words, if she commits a crime, she’s on her own. If, however, she prepares your joint taxes (or rather doesn’t prepare them) you can both be on the hook for criminal liability.
