no she did not have a divorce

Yes, but it is much harder for a wife to divorce her husband than for a husband to divorce his wife in Egypt.

The debts are paid off and the bankruptcy is closed or any remaining debts are discharged. Assuming the petitioner was the ex-wife who received the inheritance, the divorce court order still stands, and the ex-wife may file a contempt action in divorce court to have the ex-husband pay the ex-wife the amount used to pay the debts. He may even be liable for some or all the costs of the bankruptcy if his failure to pay the debts led to the bankruptcy.

Assuming these are medical bills incurred after your Chapter 7 filing and you received a discharge, and they are for medical services for you, not your husband, they will come after you. You should consider filing a chapter 13 to pay them off in whole or in part, depending on your income and expenses. If your husband has a bankruptcy lawyer, he should ask the lawyer. You may consult your own lawyer.

Yes you can, he may on the other hand will not be able to receive a discharge under the same chapter for 6 years.
