Household registration and financial responsibility

Postby archylgp » 06 Mar 2010, 10:37

Hello everyone,

If I am added to the “household registration record” (戶口)of my fiancee's family, can I be held responsible for her family's debts?

Edit
Did some research, and the answer is no.

I don't think so either....AFAIK, you will only be held responsible if you act as their guarantor and if you're not a citizen here, you cannot act as a guarantor. Just my :2cents:

This is incorrect. A non-citizen can act as a guarantor. (Whether a prospective creditor will accept them as a guarantor is another matter.)

You can only be added if you are an ROC National. You can only have your name added as a spouse to your wifes section if you are legally married.

Adding your name does not make you liable for your spouses family debts.
