No. You were not married to him. Keep your maiden name and keep your credit seperate. If it has been a long time out of the bankruptcy then his credit may not be that bad. In fact it is possible that it is better than yours. Call all three credit reporting agencies and have them send a free credit report for him and you to review. If you put him on the title of your home then it could hurt you. If you use his credit scores and they are low it could hurt you because they will take the middle score between you both.

Bankruptcy is filed in federal district court. You may want to start with their files.

You can refinance even a day out of bankruptcy. Every situation is different but the main criteria are the type of bankruptcy, your credit score, amount of equity available, how you've paid your bills since the bankruptcy and time in bankruptcy.

No, however the person's bankruptcy would be a contributing factor if the couple applied for joint credit such as a morgage.

No. Backruptcy will always appear on your credit. After 7-10 years your credit will be as good as someone who has not filed bankruptcy.

* The usual length of time after a bk dismissal required to refinance is 24 months. There are different requirements with different lenders. Some specialize in assisting borrowers with bks. * It depends on the type of Bankruptcy you filed....Chapter 7 or 13. I have lendors that will offer financing one day out of a Chapter 13.

A bankruptcy register stores information on individuals who have filed for bankruptcy. It is used by possible lenders, employers, and anyone else looking to do a financial background check on someone.

Bankruptcy can be filed at any given time depending on if you have ever filed before and when you filed last. There is no specific date as to when you can actually file.

If you are talking about someone who cosigned for your loan filing bankruptcy, As long as you continue to make your payments on time, nothing will happen. If you are talking about someone you cosigned for taking bankruptcy, you may very well have to pay this loan. Contact the lender.

After a Dismissal you can refinance anytime you want, some banks may penalize you for the filing even though you didn't go through with the BK. Just to make it clear a dismissal is when you filed a BK but then withdrew it and never went through with it or the bankruptcy was not approved. A discharge is when you completed the bankruptcy. I work with several lenders that will not penalize you for a dismissal.

No. And if you knew they were a creditor, you could be subject to fraud charges for having filed papers with the court swearing you were declaring your entire financial status and known creditors.

Yes, filing for bankruptcy does not protect you against law suits . It protects you on the payment part. Any way, after every body learns that you filed for bankruptcy, they won't lose their time - and money - to sue you, because they know you are unable to pay .
