Items on your credit history remain only with you. They do not get copied to your wife's credit history after you get married. The only items that appear on both your credit histories is if you have a joint account with both your names on the account.

I would get the advice of a lawyer on how best to proceed. You may have certain rights or obligations depending on whose name was on what papers.

I am an attorney who concentrates her practice in bankruptcy. No, your spouse is not required to tell you that he or she has filed bankruptcy. However, if you are anticipating dissolution of marriage or there are other special circumstances, the court may find fraud if your spouse disposes of assets or relieves himself or herself of debt. It varies from state to state. However, there is no requirement that a spouse tell the other of a bankruptcy. Bankruptcy is a matter of public record though and you can look up whether people have filed or not by going to the PACER website.

For any joint debts, the creditor will come after the spouse who has not filed bankruptcy.



Answeryou can call the courthouse in the state and county you were married in, they can tell you if your spouse filed for divorce.


No. When one spouse files for bankruptcy and the other spouse does not, they are only filing for their own personal debts and not those of the spouse. In general, the filing of bankruptcy by one spouse will not affect the other spouse's financial situation. A debt is created by contract between a debtor and a creditor - each debtor must sign the contract to be liable for payment. Therefore, the bankruptcy of one spouse does not cause the other to become bankrupt. Debts where spouses are joint and severally liable for payment will remain with the spouse who has not filed for bankruptcy.

My spouse and I filed 3 weeks after our marriage. I was told that it could be done immediatly.


No you are not. When one spouse and not the other files for bankruptcy they are only doing so with regard to their personal debt. A debt is created by contract between a debtor and a creditor - each debtor must sign the contract to be liable for payment. Therefore, the bankruptcy of one spouse does not cause the other to become bankrupt. Debts where spouses are joint and severally liable for payment will remain with the spouse who has not filed for bankruptcy. Under Chapter 7 bankruptcy, where one spouse's debts are wiped clean, the creditor can go after the other spouse. However, a major advantage of Chapter 13 bankruptcy, where the debtor plans to re-pay her debts, is that the creditor will leave the co-debtor alone, as long as bankruptcy plan payments are timely deposited.

You can contact the office of the bankruptcy attorney who is responsible for filing and managing the bankruptcy case. The bankruptcy court will automatically send the bankruptcy attorney copies of the bankruptcy paperwork. In most situations the bankruptcy attorney or the office paralegals will be able to tell you the date of bankruptcy in person or via telephone. Visit the United States Bankruptcy Court Federal Record Retrieval website. Once at the website, enter your name at the time of filing for bankruptcy, the state where the bankruptcy was filed, and the year you believe the case was filed. Then you will get the full details of your date of the bankruptcy.
