If my spouse files for bankruptcy, what would I be liable for?

You would be liable for all debts that you are personally liable for regardless of your spouse’s filing. Your spouse would be discharged for any of his or her dischargeable liability, however, you would remain liable for what you personally owe. If you and your filing spouse have a joint debt, you would remain liable for the debt.
