Mcdonough, GA asked in Bankruptcy for Ohio

Q: For Ohio (Dayton, Cincinnati areas). Me ex-wife filed chapter 7 bankruptcy.

She filed back in October 2017. She listed me as a Creditor. I told her I wanted nothing to do with her financial problems and issues. I emailed her attorney and stated so as well. I never heard anything back until today (2/16/18). Turns out they continued to list me. Is this fraudulent, and should I higher an attorney? Will this in pact my credit score? Is there legal actions that I should pursue? Thanks

PS. The decree states we both are 100% responsible for our own debts. All cards were separated before I filed for divorce against her.

A: No, there is no harm in her listing you, it should not "hurt" you in any way, so I don't believe you have any cause of action or injury because of this.

She filed on her debts, so it won;t affect you unless she owed you money. If that is the case, seek counsel to try and recoup the money she owes you.

Bet of luck to you.
