I was involve in a serious accident four years ago which I could not work. The insurance Co. cut me off any replacement income since `06. To date, I`m still fighting with the insurance company. Recently my husband and I filed for joint personal bankruptcy. My husband works full time but it doesn`t cover all the bills. He was working part-time but gave it up because he didn`t want to work 2 jobs. He seems to think that I should be bringing in some sort of income. My parents have been helping with groceries and whatever else they can and I`m trying to find employment even though I`m not 100%. I am under alot of pressure/stress and we are not getting along at all. To top the situation of further we have 2 children that needs to be taken care off. If I had my time back I would have just filed bankruptcy on my own. What would happen if I left my husband now that we are in joint personal bankruptcy? What are my options?

The easiest thing to do is to simply arrange with your husband that you will split the payments in the bankruptcy, that way neither of you has to suffer the full brunt of the payment and both of you will get discharged. Technically speaking you can have the trustee split the bankruptcy, but that will cost you more to go that route, so if at all possible I would continue with the joint administration.
