Legal Question

Asked on: 6/19/13, 11:59 am

I was divorced in March 2013. We have a joint debt of $3000.00 and in the divorce decree he is responsible for the whole amount of this debt. Now I have the collections agency calling me for this debt and was told the divorce decree does not supersede the contract with them and i am still responsible for half. They are filing with lawyers to take us to court. So my question is if i do have to go to court for this and i bring the divorce decree where it shows he is responsible for the debt would a judge be able to exclude me from this and make it more legal (im not sure how to put it) to where i am no longer apart of this debt and he is the only one responsible.
