If you owed the restitution amount before you married your spouse, her personal assets (separate property) is not subject to payment of the amount on the restitution order. However, under the maritial laws of your state, there is a good chance that one-half of the assets of the marriage between you and your spouse would be subject to payment for the restitution order that you are obligated upon.

I suggest that you and your spouse consult with an attorney who practices in the area of consumer debt law to further assist you in the matter you have written about.
