My ex and I jointly filed in Florida last year.

My ex and I jointly filed for divorce in Florida last year. She had $26,000 in credit card debt, which was solely in her name. We used a Florida Supreme Court Marital Settlement Agreement form, which stated "Wife shall pay as her own the following and will not at any time ask Husband to pay these debts:" The words "indemnify" and "hold harmless" were nowhere on the form. She has not payed her debts and is being actively sued by Discover in Leon County, Florida. She also plans to file bankruptcy, though I don't know whether Chapter 7 or 13. Can her creditors hold me liable for her debts?

Another quick question: I am trying to file bankruptcy, but

Another quick question: I am trying to file bankruptcy, but I am being advised I will need to take a means test for a fee of $300 and in addition if I am approved to move forward with the bankruptcy, it will cost a total of $2,323 for the bankruptcy. Is this a bit much for bankruptcy in the state of Florida. Tje attorney fee alone is $1800. It's only a house, 2 vehicles, medical bills and less than $6k in credit card debts. I just don't want to pay for a bankruptcy that is comparable to what others are paying. Thanks

I have recently found out that there has been 4 loans taken out under my name that i did not take out. i really think its my mom. But the problem is i have about 30,000 in debt (not including my house 53,000 under a contract for deed). Atleast 8,000 of it not being mine. 13,000 being student loans and 8,000 being stupid. Bankruptcy? or go after my mom for that money and try to make it out by paying the debt?
