Co-signers taking him to court

May 1st, 2009 by Questions

My husband`s ex-girlfriend`s parents co-signed on his mortgage years ago. Since that time the relationship failed and my husband was forced to file bankruptcy. The home was included in his bankruptcy. The other day, my husband received a registered letter from his ex-girlfriend`s parent`s lawyer, stating they paid the bank off and they are taking him to court for the amount they had to pay. They are asking for the full amount from him, none from their daughter. Are they able to do this since he did declare bankruptcy and was released from the mortgage?

Your husband is best to contact his trustee regarding this. Likely this debt was included, and they have no legal recourse, but this could depend on the specifics of your husbands file so make sure you verify this with his trustee.
