Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer.
I live in Maine. I am currently separated from my wife of seven years, with a divorce looming. We have two children, joint property, and a mountain of joint debt. She has not filed our signed divorce papers yet, however she has sought out a lawyer and is filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy by herself, and won't include me. Is that legal?
Response: Yes, it is legal for her to file for Chapter bankruptcy 7without including you. You should also find yourself a bankruptcy attorney and file for bankruptcy so that you would not be responsible for the joint debt after her bankruptcy.
