My ex declared bankruptcy will they come after me now

June 25th, 2009 by Questions

I just found out my ex declared bankruptcy, now i`m assuming the bank will come after me about the house we jointly own. i do not live there & cannot make the payments. do i have to declare bankruptcy now too? The bank does not have my forwarding info, what if i just ignore it & pretend I don`t know he`s declared bankruptcy, will it just go on my credit bureau. can I still keep my credit card & my car then by doing that?

If you are not in a position to be able to pay the required amounts you may be forced to file for bankruptcy. I find ignoring things usually only compounds the problem, so I would suggest you would be better off to be proactive about things as most often when people ignore issues like this it tends to compound the problem and you end up having to deal with it down the road.
