BENEFIT OF DIVISION AMONG SEVERAL GUARANTORS
1. In whose favor applicable—several guarantors of only one debtor and for the same debt
2. Extent of liability of several guarantors—joint liability to answer for the debt that is divided among them
3. Exception: when solidarity has been stipulated among them
Art. 2065. Should there be several guarantors of only one debtor and for the same debt, the obligation to answer for the same is divided among all. The creditor cannot claim from the guarantors except the shares, which they are respectively bound to pay, unless solidarity has been expressly stipulated.
The benefit of division against the co-guarantors ceases in the same cases and for the same reasons as the benefit of excussion against the principal debtor. (1837)
THE GUARANTOR MAY BE ENTITLED TO THE BENEFIT OF DIVISION WITHOUT THE REQUIREMENT THAT HE POINT OUT THE PROPERTY OF HIS CO-GUARANTORS
> Obligation with the co-guarantors is not subsidiary but direct and doesn’t depend as to its origin on the solvency or insolvency of the latter, although afterwards, if one of them should turn out to be insolvent, his share shall be born by the others
