Greetings. You should have already filed an equitable distribution claim and dealt with the debt issues in that case. The bankruptcy court can choose to hear the equitable distribution action also.
I would tell you to ask her to get a job and since you are not apparently supporting her pursuant to a court order or agreement, stop and pay more toward the debt. Best of luck.
