My ex husband and I have about $30k in credit card debt. He agreed to take it in the divorce settlement but it is all in my name.
He isn’t paying everything as he needs to be and I’m getting all the collection calls. Telling the creditors that he is responsible and giving them copies of the divorce decree doesn’t seem to matter. I want to know if I have to file bankruptcy, is it only going to affect me or him as well since it was debt we accrued while married? I am not going to do it if he gets of scott free. All the accounts have been closed and have not been used since before the divorce so there is no new debt on them, only mutual debt.
If I file bankruptcy because of my ex-husbands failure to make payments on our debt that is in my name, will it affect him as well or only me?
