When you file bankruptcy will affect your spouse's credit?
You can do it either way. It mostly depends on the financial situation you are in and if you have joint accounts or single accounts. Just went through this. Most of the bills are in my name so my husband didn't have to do it.But your lawyer will advise you on the best way to file. Hope this helps.
If you are an additional card holder on a parent's credit card account and you file bankruptcy will the bankruptcy appear on their credit?
If you are surrendering your house anyways, it is usually better for your credit score if you do it through bankruptcy. If your house is foreclosed on before you file bankruptcy, then your credit score is hit by both the foreclosure and the bankruptcy. If you let your house go back through bankruptcy, instead, then your credit score is only hit by a bankruptcy.
