Erase Your Debt and Move Forward

If I’m Married, Does My Spouse Have to File for Bankruptcy, Too?

Your spouse may file for bankruptcy jointly with you, but he or she does not have to. However, you must document your spouse’s assets and debt on your bankruptcy petition. Doing this prevents your spouse’s creditors from pursuing your community property to satisfy your spouse’s debts. If you choose to file for bankruptcy individually, your filing will not appear on your spouse’s credit report.
