Ex girlfriends hospital bills

I have an ex girlfriend who put my name on her medical bills as her spouse. We were never married, and I never signed any of these medical forms. It is now several years later and there is a collection agency after me to settle her debt. I have told these people that we were never married and that I didn't sign the paperwork, but the collectors are adamant that I pay the debt and they refuse to take it off of my credit history. According to them, they tried to have me served at her address, but as I did not live there I did not get the paperwork, or show up for the hearing, so by this logic there is a judgement against me.

 

What can I do to get these people off of my back, and have this item removed from my credit history?

Dude, you need a lawyer.  

 

You could be looking at garnishments, etc.  Spend the money on a lawyer.  Borrow it if you have to.
