Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy attorney here to assist you.
Unless you were listed as a creditor in your ex-spouse's Bankruptcy papers, her Bankruptcy filing cannot affect you, even though it contained false information.
If your ex-spouse's Bankruptcy was filed in 2011, it is probably too late for the Bankruptcy trustee to do anything about the fact that false information was filed. This is because the trustee cannot do anything after one year after discharge. Bankruptcy Stat. 727(e)(1).
(In most cases, discharge occurs within 4-6 months after a Bankruptcy is filed.)
