Your Question: My ex-husband filed chapter 7, I had to file chapter 11. There is a 'joint' bank account that only he had access to, and ran it up to $19K. Can he bankruptcy out of a joint account and dump it all on me?
Response: Unfortunately yes. Once he filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and was granted discharge of his debts, the joint account with you that he ran up became your sole responsibility. Chapter 7 is a liquidation Chapter. There is no co-debtor protection in a Chapter 7.
