Yes, but do you want to. If your spouse is signed with you on any loan or credit card and he/she doesn't file for banruptcy, he/she will now be responsible for the debt.

Generally speaking, when one spouse files for bankruptcy, the non-filing spouse should not be effected by this because they are only filing as to their individual debts. They are still obligated to the joint debts they share with you. Additionally, if you are in the process of a divorce the fact that one has filed for bankruptcy does not extinguish his duties to pay the divorce settlement, child support, alimony, etc.
