Can I be sued for a debt my ex-husband did not pay as part of our divorce?

The division of debt in the divorce decree affects only you and your husband. If your husband does not pay the bill, the creditor may come after you for the entire debt. You may have an action against your husband for his violation of the court order, but you may be no more successful in collecting from him may be no better than the creditor who has apparently decided that you are a better target.

Also, you can file and discharge (or cancel) your debt under either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. However, since you and your husband are divorced, you cannot file bankruptcy together--each of you would have to file separately. If you ex-husband files, his debt would be eliminated, but creditors would still be able to pursue collection against you. You, of course, could file and seek to discharge your liability for those debts.
