I have a friend who's husband recently left her and they are divorcing. The husband's name is on the BT account and there is a bill owing. My friend has tried phoning BT about this but as soon as she says she is not the account holder she is cut off and can't speak to anyone. She has returned all mail from BT as it is addressed to her former husband. Is the husband liable for this bill? Thanks for any advice.
Yes he is liable but if it's not paid BT will cut off the service so if your friend is depending on it she will need to get him to pay it and cancel the account so that she can then arrange for a new service in her name.
