It would appear that the statute of limitations has run on the debt (in CA it is 4 yrs from when you stopped paying). Your statement does not mention, however, whether a lawsuit has been filed against your husband. Executing on a judgment is how they could come after your husband's income. I am not familiar with the provisions of the SRA... However if you file a Ch. 7 it would make that debt and all other unsecured debts (even if lawsuit filed) go away permanently. Contact a reputable BK attorney in your area.
