Personal and Business Bankruptcy: Chapter 7, Chapter 11, Chapter 13

I'm about to be divorced and my spouse is filing for bankruptcy. Is that going to affect me?

In general, all debts incurred during the span of your marriage are considered joint debts. For example, if both you and your spouse are co-signers on a credit card obtained during your marriage, you are jointly responsible for the debt incurred on that card during your marriage. If your spouse is filing for bankruptcy, the creditors may go after you for the amount owed. It is in your best interest to have an experienced attorney help you keep your financial situation separate from your spouse's.
