If I have to file a bankruptcy, how will that affect a joint account holder?

Question Details:

I recently ended a relationship and now I have to file chapter 7. My ex doesn't want the bankruptcy to effect his credit. We bought a house and have 2 car payments and 1 credit card together. Everything else, credit cards, I had before the relationship. I want to keep the house and 1 car; he is keeping the other car and the credit card. How do I put that in the bankruptcy?
