By signing your name, it sounds like you were also a party to taking out the credit line, which would be a violation of the terms of the Act and potentially your debtor's assistance program. If your husband takes out the loan, that is fine, you are just unable to be a party to the loan. If the debtor's assistance finds out that the terms of the program have been violated, then they can drop you from the program. They may also have other recourse as laid out in your contract with them.
Please let me know if you have any other questions, or require clarification of this matter. Otherwise please hit "ACCEPT", so I may receive credit for my response. Tips and feedback are also appreciated.
Unfortunately, the only reason they would have you sing the loan is if they considered you a co-applicant. I am not sure the bank understood that although you would be making some of the payments, you could not sign documentation making you legally responsible for any of the payments.
It may behoove you to seek legal advice to ensure that your rights are protected moving forward.
