Hi - thanks for your response.
However, I think you may have misread my question. I have a suspicion that during the ancillary relief process, my wife will raise this joint debt that still exists (albeit ONLY she is liable for, because of my bankruptcy) as 'matrimonial debt'.
To simplify things, this debt my wife has is £28k. I currently have zero debt. And as there are no assets on either side of the marriage, she will argue that I owe her £14k, in order to 'even out' the matrimonial pot.
So, my question is really about whether I can argue that debts that were included in my bankruptcy, and which still exist because my wife hasn't done anything about them in 6 years, can or should be included in ancillary relief negotiations, given that a judge has already decreed that I have no liability for them under the Insolvency Act.
I'm extremely worried that a court will decide that I am now in debt to my wife, and that I will be ordered to pay her maintenance to cover my theoretical share of the £28k - even though this debt was already included in my bankruptcy.
Any thoughts on how I can argue this?
