Spouse’s income during bankruptcy
When my spouse declared bankruptcy the Trustee told me I had to reveal my income. Now that the 9 months is up the Trustee advised my husband that he has too much surplus income and the bankruptcy is extended for another 12 months.
I just found out from an employee at the Trustee’s office that I did not have to divulge my income.
Apparently, we should have used the calculator you refer to before proceeding.
Is it too late to change it? I realize he may be required to pay more but it is possible the bankruptcy would have been discharged in 9 months.
Your husband could advise the trustee that he was misinformed about his having to disclose his income and now does not want to do that.
Before doing so, please make sure you use our Bankruptcy Calculator to see the costs under both scenarios:
