If this is not your debt, then it shouldn't be listed on your credit report in the first place, especially considering your state law. The first thing I would do is contact the credit reporting agency and dispute the bill and then I would deal with your ex in getting her to pay it. But I would not claim any responsibility to the credit agency at all and I would simply dispute it. Then it will be up to the collection agency to prove it is your debt.
