I defaulted on my spouse . The Default Judgment has already been filed and dated 2 / 20 / 13 . Our official divorce date when the 6 month waiting period is over is May 16 . Starting now I am responsible for paying off the debt on credit cards in my name and she is responsible for cards in her name . She is threatening to file bankruptcy unless i keep giving her money to pay her bills because she refuses to get a job . I know bankruptcy halts the divorce . Since the judgment has already been filed 2 / 20 / 13 , we are just not legally single lit 5 / 16 / 13 , can bankruptcy still halt the proceedings ? In hoping not since we have already received judgment . Thank you so much in advance , I cant get a straight answer anywhere .
