However, this can become more complex over time when you both mingle your money and assets.

I entered into this country legally and presently staying in CA, though my visa has already expired. My fiancé and I are planning to get married soon. My fiancé is working now but he lost his job few months back and that’s why he has built up some debt. I’m pretty sure that we’ll be able to pay off the amount together over time. My only concern is that if I marry a person having some debt, would that be a problem for USCIS if I file for adjustment of my status. Is there any laws regarding this?

In the state of California, debt incurred before marriage are considered as separate and you are not liable for your future spouse's debt. However, this can become more complex over time when you both mingle your money and assets. If you want to avoid the obligation of your husband's debt, create separate bank accounts, and never mingle your assets.
