If I file for bankruptcy, will this affect my spouse's credit?

Unless you have joint debts, your spouse's debts and credit will not be affected by a bankruptcy. Many couples keep separate finances and people file for bankruptcy all the time without their husband or wife's involvement or even their approval. That being said, the assets of the marriage and your spouse's income can affect your bankruptcy. It is best to discuss your situation with an attorney so that you can take the best possible course of action for you. 

Located in Schaumburg and Itasca, we are available to help discuss your debt relief options. You might not need a bankruptcy and if that is the case, we will tell you. Call now to schedule a free bankruptcy consultation at 630 250-8813. Your free book is waiting for you!
