Will my spouse be affected by my bankruptcy?


If Spouse Files BankruptcyAlmost always when I represent one spouse who is considering bankruptcy, they will ask whether or not their bankruptcy will affect their spouse or their spouse’s finances, and the short answer is no. You can’t impair your spouse’s credit by filing your own bankruptcy. At the same time, it won’t remedy any financial problems that the spouse will have. If the client is filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, however, Chapter 13 requires that the entire household income is dedicated to the Chapter 13 plan, so it would affect the spouse only in the sense that their earnings would be part of the entire analysis of what the payment would be under a Chapter 13 plan.

At Perenich Law Injury Attorneys, we’ve been representing bankruptcy clients for about 30 years throughout the entire state of Florida. Give us a call. I’m happy to sit down and meet with you, and go through your finances carefully, and the consultation is free.
