Bankruptcy Issues Same-Sex Couples Face


Bankruptcy Issues Same-Sex Couples Face


The number of same-sex couples filing for bankruptcy has increased in recent years, and there are a number of unique issues that these couples face. For one thing, many states do not recognize same-sex marriage, which can complicate the bankruptcy process. In addition, same-sex couples may have difficulty proving that they are truly married if they live in a state that does not recognize their marriage.


Another issue that same-sex couples face is that they may not be able to take advantage of certain bankruptcy exemptions that are available to heterosexual couples. For example, the federal government offers a special exemption for married couples who own a home together. However, this exemption is not available to same-sex couples.


Finally, same-sex couples may also face discrimination from creditors or bankruptcy trustees.
