My husband had a knee surgery while we were married in the state of Montana. We divorced and he filed bankruptcy. Now I have pulled my credit report and find that there is a judgement against me for 8000.00 that I never knew about for his medical bills. I called the collection agency and they state that he was relieved of the debt when he filed bankruptcy and that it is my responsibility to pay the medical bills. I thought Montana was a separate property state? They are adding 10% interest to the debt annually. What can I do? I never signed anything accepting responsibility for these bills. Please help!
