Should your spouse join you in your bankruptcy petition?

The answer is no, but his/her income has to be used because Nevada is a community state property, and each spouse is responsible for other’s debts and obligations. However, if their combined income exceeds the Means Test, none of the spouse can file for chapter 7 bankruptcy. One spouse can stay away from filing to save her/his credit from ruination.
