Couple separating. Person 1 is filing for BK. Person 2 is not (no matter what).
Does Person 2 get put in any worse position by spouse's filing?
Community assets: home furnishings, clothing. $40K car of Person 1.
Misc: unpaid accrued salary from pre and post separation
. Don't know how one could collect from employer who can't afford to pay the accrued salary, but how does that play out?
(no intention of getting back together), Person 1 is co-signer on home loan, has $50K of credit card debt in her name, storage facility debt of $15 (where all home items have been for a year), $100K joint debt.
In Person 2's name (from a bill standpoint) is HOA, misc utilities.
In Person 2's name alone are credit cards and non-home lines : $200K
In person 2's name alone are judgments: $300K. The debts are from Person 2 signing personally on business debt (business is owned by other people, unrelated).
In person 2's name is $200K judgment based on dollars loaned to community, used by community, but taken out in Person 2's name.
