cortrightlaw : You have to be careful because you do not want to commit bankruptcy fraud by hiding assets. You should go meet with a bankruptcy attorney to discuss your situation in detail before you do anything. Usually people do not need to move assets around prior to filing bankruptcy as they think and an attor ey can provide good guidance. If you are really getting divorced and the split of assets is legitimate giving your husband his assets through the divorce then it will not be a problem. But if you are manufacturing the divorce and the transfer of the house to hide it from creditors it will become a problem.
