other spouse responsible for debt when one files bankruptcy?

I filed bankruptcy 3yrs.ago before I married my now husband,he aquired alot of bills not to my knowledge;but then has filed bankruptcy on all bills; the debt collectors are stating now that I am responsible for his debts. We had a statement drew up and signed by he and I and 4 other witnesses that we would not be responsible for any debts that the other one makes during our marriage unless both signatures were on the debts. Is this legal, and can I still be held responsible for his debts even though he filed them under bankruptcy and we signed this paper? Please let me know on this ASAP.
