I am married with 1 child and I have a lot of debt in my name, no joint debt at all, no joint account and I am not on the mortgage and the car is in his name. . My husband works I don't. He pays the mortgage and bills I pay for household shopping our son and dog! If I were to go bankrupt how would it effect him? Would he need to file? Would his earnings be taken into account? what checks does the official receiver make? Do they check us both out. Very worried. Really need some comprehensive advice. Thank you in advance.
Hi, No the house is solely in my husbands name, he works full time, and pays the mortgage and always has done. I am just concerned that the OR will say i have contributed, no money i have had has ever gone towards the mortgage, but could the OR prove otherwise. Thanks BT
