The Trustee van escrow the funds and permit you a discharge. If they won’t, you may need to seek another attorney. It shouldn’t be terribly difficult to locate that creditor and/or his successor and provide that info to the trustee so the creditor can be paid and the case closed completely.

Timothy Denison's answer
You must disclose all of your assets when filing bankruptcy. You cannot keep this from your husband because he is a co-debtor and Co-owner. He will get notice from the court if not from you. Break the news about the debt to your husband and figure out how to pay it off. Bankruptcy doesn’t appear to be a good option.
