My wife has considerable personal CC debt and medical bills and is unable to work due to cancer, treatment and surgery.
Can she file for chapter 7 bankruptcy and declare 0 income, or would my income figure into the means test?

Re: Spouse Filing
The non-filing spouse's income is counted in the means test, but the portion that does not go to household expenses can be excluded.
