Thank you for your question. I am happy to assist you.
The debt awarded to your ex in the divorce is not dischargable in bankruptcy. Her obligations to you under the divorce decree will not be forgiven by the bankruptcy.
Section 523 of the Bankruptcy Code excepts from discharge both property settlements and support obligations. You can read the Code here: http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/html/uscode11/usc_sec_11_00000523----000-.html
I hope that the information which I provided was helpful to you.
Best wishes for a successful outcome. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to submit them to me directly.
Thank you, FLAandNYLAWYER
