Filing Bankruptcy

Filing Bankruptcy in Arizona


Question: I am married living in AZ. I will be filing for bankruptcy. Can you file separately or do you have to file together ? How long does it take ? My home will be going into foreclosure. I will be moving to NY in the near future for a job. Can I move before this situation is done is that possible ?

Answer: You may file either jointly or separately at this point. Once the bankruptcy petition is filed, the 341 meeting of creditors is set. The 341 meeting of creditors is usually set for about 6 weeks after the petition is filed. This may cause a problem if you move to New York before the 341 meeting because you will have to fly back for the meeting.

You should consult with an experienced bankruptcy attorney to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of filing a bankruptcy without your spouse.
