If by "property limit" it is meant what personal and real property can be exempted from bankruptcy, that is determined by the type of bankruptcy you must file, federal or state. To discover what the type and amount of property one is allowed to exempt you can search federal bankruptcy exemptions or (name of state) bankruptcy exemptions; in a few states the person can choose to use either set of exemptions or a combination thereof.

The answer to this depends on the type of bankruptcy you are filing.

Other things that you must do include: Filling out a two-page petition and other forms (describing your property, income, monthly living expenses, debts, exempt property, property owned and money spent in the previous 2 years, and property given away in the previous 2 years and Filing the petition/forms with the bankruptcy court in your area.

If your husband files for bankruptcy does it include you also?

This depends on two things. Are the debts joint and do you live in a community property state? If they are his debts alone and you do not live in a community property state you are not responsible. Therefore you do not need to be a part of bankruptcy proceedings. If however they are joint debts and/or you live in a community property state you are equally responsible for the debt(s). And it would be in both of your best interest to file a joint bankruptcy.
