If the debt was acquired during the marriage, it is also yours. If it was acquired after the filing of a divorce, it is not community. If it was acquired without your knowledge, then you would have criminal charges against him and Discover should work with you. If the debt was acquired prior to a divorce being filed, you were aware of the debt and he alone filed for bankruptcy, Discover can collect from you.
