Was the BK in both your names? Was any debt he discharged in BK have your name on it? If you can't get your name off anything tied to him, you'll basically have to rebuild your credit from scratch. It will take 10 years for the BK to fall off your credit report, but it will become less significant to your score over time. If you currently still have credit, use it responsibly, make on-time payments and unfortunately, wait it out.

It also can't hurt to contact the credit agencies and file a dispute.

I'm not clear how his BK is affecting your credit.  Do you still have accounts in both your names?  If that is the case, you need to get your name off anything he is tied to.
