What do you do when the bank sends 1099C to both parties involved with a cancellation of debt for the same amount which doubles the forgiven debt?

There is one debt - two names on the loan but the bank has issued 2 1099C for the same debt?

The issuer is required to let both parties know abut the debt forgiveness, same as they do for  a married couple.  They cannot rely on one of you to tell the other.  It doesn't double the debt at all.  Either one of you can claim it or pay it.
