friend went through a nasty divorce in Florida. she and lawyer contacted the credit card company to remove her name from a joint account 4 times and the company refused and ex continued charging after divorce. 20k later he files bankruptcy. now they are coming after her to pay. while they are willing to settle does that make her responsible for taxes on unpaid amount. looking for suggestions on how to deal with the credit card company as she is this close to going down the bankruptcy route to not get stuck with a huge bill. Would this be counted as a debt settle ment with a protest to avoid the tax hit? any suggestions greatly appreciated.
