Re: Bankruptcy

Yes, you can file bankruptcy on your own without your spouse joining you. However, if you do that, you would have to calculate your husband's income to determine your eligibility (for chapter 7). There may also be issues regarding the credit card debt, to be sure that those creditors could not take action against your husband.
