The answer is, you're probably going to have to consult a local
attorney. The reason being is that local decisions and local
rules may change generalized answers. In Michigan, for example,
there's a test that can be used. It would be, is giving the
ex-spouse the debt (which you would do since her name is still
on the loan) more of a hardship on her than it is for you to
keep it? (Which it probably is) You have other issues also,
such as the weight that the divorce judgment holds with the court.
As I said before, talk to a local attorney. Don't take any
advice online as the end-all answer to your problems
