Ex going bankrupt, does it affect the joint account we had?

My H and I have been separated for over 6 months. We had a joint account that all the household direct debits came out of and we only took his name off the account last week. He has to declare himself bankrupt later this month. I am worried that money I have in that account will be affected. Please can anyone advise?
I am in Scotland.

If his name isn't on the account they wouldn't touch it.

Although they might ask why his name has come off of the account so close to bankruptcy (so they know he's not (hiding) money iyswim )

the backruptcy section is very informative

Thank you. He has not put any money into the account since June so should be straightforward to show that he is not hiding any money there. It is my money, child benefit and tax credit money.
