If I bailed my husband out of jail but now we are getting divorced, does the bail have to still be paid by me?

Question Details: I bailed my husband out 11 months ago; I put down $600 and was making payments (well my ex was when he was here). We split up 9 months ago and he went back to jail 4 months later. So the bondsman would have gotten his money back. I have a court date next month for the final divorce. Since he is in custody do I still have to make payments on this $400 and something that he was supposed to be making or since we are going to be divorced could this fall back on him and he would have to finish when he gets out since he is in custody? No property was put up just the down payment.
