Generally, the best way to deal with community debt in a divorce is to pay it off, close the account and move forward. In my case I had to refinance the house to get my ex off of the mortgage. All credit cards were paid off and closed when we started our divorce and new credit cards were obtained as individuals. It is the best way, but I don't see that as an option in this case. With 67K in "her" name and he has an unknown but maxed credit in "his" name, paying off the debt is secondary to providing for the children. He is already having problems servicing his existing debt. There is no reason to believe he will be any more responsible after a divorce.
