Well, if they were joint accounts, did you get yourself removed from them after the divorce?  A divorce decree doesn't go out to your creditors, and even if it did, they don't just take your name off the account.  Depending on what type of accounts they are, your ex may have to re-apply to qualify under his income alone.  For example, if you both had a mortgage together, then both of your income and credit reports were taken into consideration for the mortgage.  You can't just take one away, the mortgage has to be re-financed under one person's name.  Lots of folks think the divorce decree fixes that, but it only states who is financially responsible for what, it doesn't remove you from any joint loans, etc.  Hope this helps.
