I am looking into possibly filing bankruptcy and two questions come to mind. If I want to file does my husband have to also? Second, I keep reading about filing and discharge so If I file, what happens to my rent? Can I be evicted? Do I pay it? we live in a townhome that it owned by someone else (it was their first home) i dont know if that makes a difference at all.
State/Country relating to question: Utah
So if we move to a cheaper place we can put the remainder of our lease on the bankruptcy too?
there is only a few more months but we are struggling big time. we are getting letters about utlities being turned off and everything
