It is possible to file a joint petition for bankruptcy as a married couple, but not required. You can file jointly or separately, depending on your situation and how much debt you both share. However, keep in mind that because Arizona is a community property state, both spouses can be held responsible for debts incurred by one member if the debt occurred during the marriage. The best course of action greatly depends on your specific situation, so contact one of our bankruptcy attorneys today to find out if joint or separate petitions are right for you.
