Video: Does my spouse have to file bankruptcy with me?

No, however a joint filing with you and your spouse will discharge all dischargeable debt of both you and your spouse individually and jointly. In the event that your spouse does not file, he or she will still be on the hook for all of their own individual and joint debt. In such a case, however, the non-filing spouse can later file their own individual bankruptcy to discharge their debt.
