Bankruptcy and uncooperative spouse
July 19th, 2009 by Questions
I have about 90K of personal debt and currently unemployed and thinking of going back to university. I`am married and my wife`s income is sufficient to cover household expenses but not the minimum payments on my debt.
Declaring bankruptcy seems to be the only option available right now but it has a hitch. My wife is unwilling to let her income and assets be disclosed. The debt is all mine and occurred prior to marriage and she feels she does not have anything to do with it.
Is there anyway short of separation that she can be kept out of bankruptcy proceedings?
