Under the bankruptcy rules, married couples can file Chapter 7 bankruptcy together. Unfortunately, due to limitations in our software, Upsolve cannot assist couples with a joint filing. But, you can use Upsolve to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy as an individual without your spouse. You can learn more about what filing bankruptcy without your spouse looks like here. Check out this article to learn more about how a Chapter 7 bankruptcy may affect your non-filing spouse. Note, the Upsolve app does not allow married couples to complete the process at the same time, even if each spouse is looking to file individually.
If you’re not sure about whether your situation is better suited for a joint filing, consider speaking to a bankruptcy lawyer about your situation. Most bankruptcy attorneys provide free initial consultations, so you only need to invest your time. If you can’t afford to hire the attorney and you want to continue filing a case without your spouse, you can use Upsolve’s web app to guide you through the process and file your case.
