Should I File Bankruptcy Before Getting Married?


Getting married is a momentous event, and couples should be prepared for any and all financial considerations before they officially tie the knot. One important question to consider is whether filing for bankruptcy should be part of that preparation.


Making the decision to file for bankruptcy involves many factors, including existing debt, future earnings potential and overall credit score. If one partner has high amounts of debt that could affect their future together as a couple—for example if it affects joint income or ability to get approved for loans—it may make more sense to file for bankruptcy prior to getting married. Filing prior to marriage might also prevent the other partner from being liable for those debts in some cases.


On the other hand, filing jointly can have advantages in terms of potentially reducing fees and legal costs associated with filing individually or taking longer to complete the process.
