, A licensed trustee said:

Your children’s creditor rating will not be affected if yuo file for bankruptcy. In fact, neither will a spouse or any other person – bankruptcy may be filed jointly (more than one person), but it only directly affects the person(s) that file.

Indirectly everyone living in the household of someone thta has filed for bankruptcy may be affected. The person that files for bankruptcy is required to report the household’s income and its expenses – that usually means that everyone in the household that either earns income or spends money needs to co-operate with the person that filed for bankruptcy in order to properly complete these reports.
