7 Questions Answered
- Q. Can I prevent my husband from filing for bankruptcy? Does he need my permission in order to do so?
- A: No. A married person can file a bankruptcy as a single filer. He will have to list you as a non-filing spouse. Your income will be included on his schedules and he will have to submit your paystubs and tax returns.
- Q. Will I lose all of my property if I file for Chapter 7? What can I protect/keep?
- A: The federal bankruptcy laws provide for exemptions. Certain property and equity in property can be protected. You should consult with an experienced local bankruptcy attorney to discuss this. You need to disclose all of your assets, debts and income. Good luck.
- Q. How long does a Chapter 7 case last?
- A: A typical no asset chapter 7 lasts 4-5 months. If the case it an asset case it can last over a year. The majority of cases are no asset cases. I suggest calling a local experienced bankruptcy attorney to discuss your debts, income and assets. Good luck.
