Community Property States:

Any account you open while you are married is considered a joint account in states that are "community property" states. In these states, debts are viewed as joint debts, even if they are opened only in one individual's name. Upon your spouse's death, you are responsible for any outstanding debts on these accounts.

Community property states are:

Arizona
