Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy and Consumer Protection attorney here to assist you.
Will your ex-husband be filing a joint return?
Thank you for your response.
If you will be owing the money to your ex-husband, you can have this debt discharged if you file a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.
The effect of a Chapter 13 is you will have to pay something to your creditors - including your ex-husband - but your will only have to pay what you can reasonably afford.
With a Chapter 7, you would pay nothing to your creditors - but this type of debt is not dischargeable in a Chapter 7.
But yes, you can bankrupt what you owe to your ex-husband if you file a Chapter 13.
Once you find out the amount owed.
