Debtor FAQ's

What happens to joint debt when only one spouse files a bankruptcy?

The other spouse will owe the whole debt in most cases. A non-filing co-debtor remains liable to pay the debt. However, by filing a Chapter 13 case a debtor can protect a non-filing co-debtor from legal action if the debt is a consumer debt.
