Legal Question in Bankruptcy in Virginia

Clarification of bankruptcy law

My wife declared bankruptcy in '97. She included the family house and I received a deed of gift for the house. I recently called to have her name removed from the deed, they claim she is still liable for the loan and that her bankruptcy does not protect her should I default on the the loan. Is this correct?

That is not correct, provided she received a discharge and did not reaffirm the mortgage.
