If you are married and thinking about bankruptcy, you have some additional things to consider before you file. Married couples can file a joint bankruptcy petition or one spouse may file alone -- there are pros and cons to each of these courses of action. If you do file individually without your spouse, make sure you understand how that will affect your spouse's liability for joint debts and what will happen to jointly owned property.
