Not exactly - they are still part of the divorce decree . However, these debts became hers , as part of the divorce , so it is the only responsible for them at this time. If your bankruptcy includes debts , chances are you will not have to pay . In some cases , part of the debts are eliminated, but the debtor has to pay a portion . The bankruptcy court will decide , based on their ability to pay .
