Settlement Agreement vs BK

Perhaps I asked too many questions in my prior post.


In my divorce (decree dated Oct 31, 2000 from PA), part of the separation agreement stated that I will not hold my ex-wife responsible for 2 loans, both joint, (Student and Car) in the event that I default. Would she have any legal recourse in the event of my filing a BK? She is contemplating a BK as well, but in the event she does not file, what could she do?

Any help will be appreciated...

That student loan is going to be tough to discharge. As I'm Always Liable posted last week, they can be discharged under extreme hardship conditions but the threshold is high. I hope you and your ex are talking to a lawyer about this situation.
