Legal Question in Bankruptcy in Illinois

bankruptcy while in process of divorce

My husband, in Illinois, filed bankruptcy a few months ago, which I didn't know about, and we are now in the process of divorce. Under marital assets, he put ''none'', and under mine, he put ''none''. If I sign these divorce papers, am I still liable for all debts incurred during our marriage?
