As the credit card was in your name, it would still be your responsibility for repayment.   If you are still timely, you could file theft charges against the ex for taking the card.   Unless he was an authorized signer in which case you would still be reponsible.  Just make your payments timely and work to drive down the amount owed to keep your score at its highest.

This is an item that should have been discussed with your attorney at the time the divorce was being prepared.  The attorney could have had this debt listed in all the debts ex-husband was responsible for paying.
