Husband’s income

October 2nd, 2012 by Questions

I’ve filed for bancruptcy recently, my husband has not. He won’t divuldge me his actual income but gives me a fix amount monthly as his share for all household expenses. Can I declare the amount he’s giving me monthly as his income. This will affect our surplus income.

If he is not willing to disclose the total amount he makes you wouldn’t have any choice but to not disclose his income for the purposes of the surplus income calculation. This obviously will impact your cost of the bankruptcy, but without his full income figure you really don’t have any choice.
