How can you find out if your ex-husband has filed bankruptcy?
Bankruptcies don't become public record until after they are discharged. Perhaps you could just ask him, or one of his family members. I see no reason why it would be a big secret. If you still have joint debts, you will be notified of the proceedings. Child support, spousal support is not dischargeable in bankruptcies , (in case you were curious).

Typically when you file bankruptcy, you have to disclose all the assets that you have. And so everything you own can be susceptible to review by a bankruptcy court. … However, certain assets can not be touched because they are considered essential for either your well-being or your means of making a living. A car sometimes can not be touched because it is considered vital to your ability to make a living. However, different states have different laws on the treatment of assets. I would highly recommend you check the laws in your state.

Answer Check your Credit Report. It has the names, addresses, and phone numbers of each of the creditors used over the past 7 years. Call or go on-line to contact all t…hree Credit Reporting Agencies. The Bankruptcy Code as amended in 2005 requires you to use the creditor's address that is on the last three written notices that creditor has sent you. If you have not received anything in writing from them in a while, then go online and search for the corporate address and telephone number. Call them and ask them what their company's bankruptcy address is. Write down the steps you took to obtain the proper address in case you need the information later. Use all addresses you have for that creditor in your bankruptcy schedules and mailing matrix - overkill is better. Failure to properly notify the creditor may result in that debt not being discharged so treat this as one of the most important aspects of filing.

However, if you have been married for awhile and have a lot of joint debt, you should file jointly because your obligation to repay joint debt will survive your husband's bankruptcy.

The first step in understanding financial distress is realizing that you are in financial trouble and need help. Contact a bankruptcy attorney in your area for a free init…ial consultation. First, bankruptcy can stop creditor harassment. Many creditors will call you all day, every day, any time of day. Bankruptcy provides a fresh financial start by making it illegal for creditors to contact you. This can be your first sigh of relief.

It depends on what Chapter you file under and how complicated your case is. Your lawyer will definitely go to the meeting of creditors with you, where you sit before the tru…stee for an interview that, for most people, is a formality. If you have more assets than you are allowed to keep, the lawyer will negotiate terms with the Trustee. This can take the form of surrender of assets or payment of cash in lieu of giving up assets (Chapter 7) or submission and amendment of your payment Plan (Chapter 13/11). If you have been accused of bankruptcy fraud or abuse, whether intentional or not, you will need an attorney to defend you through the process. This might cost extra. With all this in mind, your lawyer's primary job is to set you up before you file so that none of this bad stuff happens. And if it has to, your lawyer's job is to prepare you so that there are no surprises. The most important part of your lawyer's job is what happens before you file. This is not intended as legal advice. It is a general answer. Consult an attorney as to your specific situation. Henry Paloci Member, CA Bar and FL Bar http://www.cleanstartbankruptcy.com
