My ex husband filed chapter 7. He put the debts that were his from the divorce. Now the companies are saying I am liable for them now that he is untouchable because of the chapter 7. Do I have to pay these? They are on my credit report as bad debts but they are his. I live in WI he lives in TX. Thank you for your help.
PS When I called the people one my credit report they said they follow the original application and the divorce papers are not valid.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
