If I get a divorce will he be responsible for some ofour debt or all of it if it’s solely in my name?

I’m thinking of getting a divorce from my husband after finding out he’s been having other relationships while on his so called business trips. Throughout our marriage all the big loans for the family have been taken out under my name (as in the mortgage for our house and a home equity line). The home equity line my husband took solely to invest into some business and he lost it all. I am scared to get a divorce because everything is under my name.
