Q: I'm getting married soon. I have an excellent credit rating, but my fiance has a poor one. Several years in college left him with credit card and other debts. Will I be legally responsible for his debt? Can I apply for credit without naming him? We won't share the same last name. Alison Thomas, Boston Yikes — it's not wise to start a marriage on bad credit. On a personal note, encourage your fiance to get his finances in order. Now, to answer your legal question: If you apply for credit in your own name, and you have good credit, your fiance's bad credit should not haunt you. The bank is interested only in the credit of the person who agrees to be responsible for the loan. If you alone sign on the dotted line, and if you qualify for the loan, your fiance's financial history should prove irrelevant. If you apply jointly for credit, the bank will look at the application with a jaundiced eye unless you handle the debt alone with your own credit and income. Q: Who pays for the attorneys of accused Oklahoma City bombers Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols? [A date for their trial, in Denver, had not been set at press time.] Who watches over their expenses? Phil Michaels, Tulsa We the taxpayers pay. Both lawyers — who, by the way, were asked by the circuit court of appeals to take the case because no local lawyers Greta Van Susteren are lawyers and hosts of CNN's Burden of Proof (12:30 p.m. ET weekdays). laws raryiy state. ChecfcwMh an attorney before taking action. would take it — are appointed under the Criminal Justice Act. These attorneys are paid $75 an hour for out-of-court time and $100 an hour for in- court time. Comparing these fees to what retained attorneys get is like comparing a Volkswagen to a Mercedes. Also, the judge will review the bills. Q: Are there any states where I can take the bar exam without first going to law school? R.E. Gambetta Saddle Brook, N.J. In the good old days, before law schools, studying with a lawyer was the way to learn the law. Remember the stories about "Honest Abe Lincoln, who studied the law by candlelight at his home on the Illinois prairie?" Well, those days are gone forever — with the exception of at least two states we know of: Virginia and California. In those states, you must study a certain number of hours with a practicing lawyer and be able to pass the same bar examination that law school students pass. We definitely don't recommend this route. It is a tough, tough way to go. d Thursday is the first anniversary of the acquittal of O.J, Simpson. Says Van Susteren: "One year later, can we really say the verdict Is in? Our nation remains divided." This week, Burden of Proof will revisit the trial, to coincide with the show's anniversary.
