What is the name of your state? Oregon

I recently got married this past May. I was married before and accrued all debt from my 1st marriage as part of the divorce proceedings. I have no option but to file Chapter 7. How will it affect my new spouse. Mainly, will it effect her house? The mortgage, deed, sales agreement etc. are in her name and I'm no where listed as an owner. The only thing I am responsible for is I help pay the mortgage. Can the court come after her home? What can I do to protect her once/before I file?

As long as your name is on NONE of the papers for the house, then your BK will NOT affect the house whatsoever.
