My Ex-husband recently filed bankruptcy. The divorce decree specifically states that he would be responsible for any debt affiliated with the Best Buy Account which is a joint account. Even though I proved to the credit collection agency that the balance of the account was $0.00 when we were divorced and that he made approximately $900.00 in purchases after the divorce, because it was a joint account they are holding me liable.

What recourse is available to me regarding this debt which has grown to $1,300 because of interest.

I told my ex-husband Best Buy changed the name on the account to my name after he filed the bankruptcy. His lawyer told him that basically it was my problem. After Best Buy filed a bad report on my credit report I disputed the bad report and mailed in the proof to the credit reporting agency that the debt was incurred solely by my ex-husband after the divorce and they deleted the bad debt from my credit report.

Now another credit collection agency is calling me and threating litigation against me.

So my husband gets to have a mid-life crisis, buy a motorcycle, get tattooed, get another woman pregnant and I get to pay for his purchases at Best Buy and he doesn't have to worry about anything?

Where is the justice?
