Nevada Individual Bankruptcy & Joint Filing Representation
You may select from a couple of bankruptcy options depending on your situation. Do you have to file jointly? No, you do not have to file bankruptcy jointly, but you do have the option. One married spouse can file for bankruptcy individually. However, as a general rule it is almost always better for a husband and wife to file together in order to take full advantage of all available bankruptcy options and exemptions. For instance, if one spouse files there will be one set of exemptions while the assets of both spouses will be eligible for liquidation. This could result in home foreclosure, losing more property to liquidation than would occur if both spouses file.
