If it is going to be a joint obligation, then they will check your credit status. If both incomes are not needed to qualify for the transaction, the husband could apply in his name only. Therefore only his credit rating would be used.

I don't have a husband, so nothing will happen. If you are talking about your husband, you should talk to his lawyer. If you are talking about a friend, you should make sure the lawyer for the debtor/husband knows about the stroke. Depending on where the bankruptcy was at the time of the stroke, there may be little effect. If it was after the 341 meeting, unless there were issues raised that need attention, probably nothing will happen. If there were any unresolved issues, or the 341 meeting has not been held, his wife or any person familiar with his financial affairs may be allowd to testify in his behalf. Check with the bankruptcy trustee.

Your husband's name is not on the deed, but is he on the loan? If yes, then it cannot be foreclosed and repossessed if the property is listed on his bankruptcy filing, and, as long as his bankruptcy payments are current.

No. As long as you are filing for bankruptcy by yourself, your money with your husband will remain joint. Keep in mind that any debts you may share with your husband will remain with him as well.

Certainly. That's why there are federal bankruptcy courts that have jurisdiction wherever the debt is.
