Unfortunately, because your boyfriend’s name is on the mortgage still, he thus has a joint liability on making mortgage repayments. By declaring bankruptcy, his ex-girlfriend’s liability ends, lumping the onus on him. An awkward side-effect of bankruptcy is that it can transform joint debts into single debts.
I would suggest seeking expert, impartial advice immediately, especially if these are payments you would struggle to make.
