Hello, I am happy to assist you today.
If you have a court order stating that he is liable for half of the debt in your name, then you can use that court order to file a claim in the bankruptcy court as a creditor. You can try to get some money out of the proceedings to pay off what he owes that is in your name.
Honestly, this is not how this should have worked out, and it makes me crazy when I see judges split up property and liability without requiring it to be put in that person's name. So those amounts should have been transferred over to his name, either through a loan, a credit card, whatever.
You could still go back to court and ask the judge to amend the court order in light of changed circumstances. You can ask that all his debts be in his name at this point so that you aren't burdened with them.
Let me know if you have any questions.
