Without knowing a lot more it is difficult to say. However, this is not a Social Security matter. Perhaps a bankruptcy attorney can give you better guidance. I will reclassify your question.
The information provided here is meant to be general in nature and not intended to establish an attorney-client relationship.
Get a restraining order, a family law attorney and don't sign anything.
I would not sign anything until you know what it is and what the purpose of signing it is. I can't imagine it helps you any. If you saying he wrote a lot of bad check that are coming back to you, then you need to get that straightened out with the bank if possible. You want to make sure he does not have the ability to write any more checks so you may need to close down the account.
The dialogue on this website does not constitute legal advice nor does it form any sort of attorney-client relationship.
Consult a BK, Family Law and SS Admin lawyer. Believe it or not, many offer a free consultation. This will help you sort out the many issues facing you and get you pointed in the right direction.
You are not my client and I am not your attorney. This advice is given in the spirit of the AVVO platform and is based on general legal principles. You become a client when you enter into a formal retainer agreement with me.
Interesting question involving crossover issues of Social Security, Family Law, Bankruptcy, Credit Repair.
If you do not understand the document, do not sign it until you either achieve understanding independently or review with BK counsel.
You should also report it as a crime. It sounds like your ex is ripping you off. Identity theft is a criminal act. If you want to have any chance of getting this damage fixed you need to do a police report. If he makes the mistake of trying to file bankruptcy, there is an action to have him denied a discharge of the debts that you are on the hook for. He may also be denied a discharge of all his debts.
You need to immediately see a highly qualified bankruptcy attorney to find out what can be done to protect you I would recommend you look at Avvo's ratings for Sacramento bankruptcy attorneys. Go with best. They are usually no more expensive than a good one.
You could also look at the CA State bar website for a Certified Bankruptcy Law Specialist in Sacramento. Most attorneys will give you are free initial consultation. I have provided a link to the state bar below.
Another potential source for finding a good attorney would be through a search of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA.org) to find a good local attorney. Again, I have provided a link below.
There is a new ratings website that ranks over 70 different "top rated Sacramento bankruptcy attorneys" using a number of different criteria. This website leaves a lot to be desired in looks, but it has a sort-able database that gives you 20+/- different options to sort the attorneys based on what you think are the most important. It apparently does not accept advertising from attorneys. I have included the link below.
No matter how good an attorney is rated, if you are not comfortable with the attorney when you meet, move on to another attorney. Also, if the attorney uses a paralegal to do the initial appointment, move on because you are just a number and a dollar sign. If this is how you are treated when they are trying to get your money, you can be certain it is not going to get better after they get your money.
Do NOT use an attorney that does anything other than bankruptcy law, foreclosure or debt negotiation. Part-time bankruptcy attorneys are, sadly, almost never expert enough to do the job right. This is a specialized field and you should go with an attorney who practices solely in that specialty. Never hire to veterinarian's assistant to do brain surgery on you and never hire a non-specialist to do a specialists job. Get the right attorney to begin with.
