In some cases, bankruptcy can benefit one spouse more than the other (and help keep you both protected in the long run). It is possible to file bankruptcy separate from your spouse however, the non-filing spouse will still be on the hook for their private financial obligations, as well as any joint debts. Filing individually works best for couples who have mostly individual debt obligations. Also, as Arizona is a community property state, it is best to speak with an experienced bankruptcy attorney about your unique case to determine the best course of action for you and your spouse.
