My spouse was sued (civil) in another country for something he didn't even cause, but the court has ruled in favour of the plaintiff. I'd rather not give specifics, but it is for a few hundred thousand $$$ Can they come after us here? I did not sign surety and was not a party to it. As we're married, can they take my assets too? (E.g. A jointly owned house). Can they take my savings away? And my superannuation? As this is a total crock, we are appealing and have good grounds for appeal. But still, I would like to know what could happen in the very worst case scenario. And how I could protect myself.
