In Oregon, a spouse is liable for the other spouse's medical debt, even if you never signed any paperwork agreeing to be liable. Even though you filed a chapter 7 a few years ago, a chapter 13 may still be an option. Depending on your circumstances, a 13 could also help you to keep your home. I would suggest you consult with a bankruptcy attorney to determine your options. Most offices, like mine, offer free consultations.
