Impact of Bankruptcy on SO\’s Credit

August 2nd, 2007 by Questions

My significant other declared bankruptcy in 2006 and was discharged in January 2007. We are now living common-law. What impact does his bankruptcy have on my good credit rating? If we decide to purchase a house together is there anything I should know before approaching a bank for mortgage?
