Re: Married, filing chapter 7
Yes, as long as there are no joint debts. However, the spouse's income will be included on the petition for determining the debt to income ratio. There are no guarantees that his/her name will not be attached to yours and recieve a bankruptcy credit rating. You need to weigh all of the risks involved before proceeding.
