If you were only an authorized user and not a joint account holder, you should never be responsible for the primary account holder's debt.

Would an ex-spouse be responsible for credit card debt even though his name was removed from the account and the charges were made after the divorce?

If he is not on the account he is not responsible for the debt, even if he made charges. If the charges were made without the consent of the account holder he could be guilty of a fraudulent act. Whoever's name is on the account is the one who owes the debt.

When will being removed as an authorized user show up on your credit report?

In general, those becoming "authorized users" will not have changes made to their credit report unless (1) they become an authorized user of a company card and that company requires employees to take personal responsibility for charges or (2) they become a joint account holder, making them responsible for all charges. So, if one falls into one of the above camps, the time varies based on the frequency with which the issuer chooses to inform the credit bureaus. Because "authorized user" status does NOT change the liability of the account holder, these types of credit report transactions are not priorities and may take place a few times per year. Wait three (3) months and re-review your credit reports. If the "authorized user" does not disappear, dispute the tradeline with the appropriate credit bureau.
