I am in the middle of a nasty divorce, she is fighting for everything and is giving up nothing. I had a 401k that was rolled into an IRA with about $100k (that was started before my marriage). She has a 401k and 403b with less than $25k. We've been married for 20 years. She filed for bankruptcy during our marriage about 10 years ago just before we bought our 2nd house. Since filing for divorce she has accumulated $7k of debt. She has a habit of not paying her bills or the bills in my name. If she is awarded any money from the divorce, what happens to it if she files for bankruptcy? Also, am I responsible for the bills and services that are in my name, even though I didn't use them?
