I am planning to get married soon after I file. Will my bankruptcy affect my spouse?
If you’re planning to get married soon after filing for bankruptcy, it’s important to understand how this can affect your spouse. A bankruptcy filing can have an impact on both current and future assets of the person who filed, as well as any joint accounts that are held between the two of you.
First and foremost, any debts that you incur prior to marriage will remain your responsibility alone. This includes credit card debt or medical bills accrued before the wedding day. Your spouse may also be required by law to pay off some of your pre-marriage debt if they cosigned a loan or opened a joint account with you prior to marriage. Furthermore, any future debts incurred together during the course of your marriage will be shared equally between both parties unless otherwise specified in a postnuptial agreement.
