Bankruptcy does not change your credit history, which remains on your credit report for (generally) 7 years.  There will be notification on your report that this account was discharged in other party's bankruptcy but the period during which you were co-borrower will have to remain on your history.

To better understand the different aspects of credit, please read the articles presented on this site.  They are very good information for your help, which is the purpose of Credit Karma
