Chapter 7 or 13 Bankruptcy Case by Spouses

On May 4, 2010, in Bankruptcy, by Robbie L. Vaughn, Esq.

Husband and wife joint bankruptcy filing.

Yes, a husband and wife can file a joint bankruptcy case under chapter 7 or chapter 13.  When a joint bankruptcy case is filed, only one bankruptcy petition is filed and only one filing fee is paid to the court.  However, both husband and wife must complete the required pre-filing credit counseling course and the required post-filing financial management course. The more difficult question is whether or not spouses should file a joint bankruptcy case. A knowledgeable bankruptcy lawyer can assist you in making that decision.

As always, the Law Firm of Vaughn, Weber & Prakope, PLLC is here to assist you.  Contact us at (516) 858-2620 to arrange a consultation with a bankruptcy attorney.
