Will filing for bankruptcy in Canada affect my USA spouse?Will filing for bankruptcy in Canada affect my USA spouse?  I recently got married to my USA spouse and am in the process of applying for my Visa to the USA.

I’ve received information that I can’t transfer my car loan etc to the USA and I can’t pay the loans off in full.

If I apply for bankruptcy in Canada will it affect my American spouse and my future credit in the USA??

I am not an expert in US bankruptcy law so I cannot say if your Canadian bankruptcy will affect your US Spouse or if a Canadian bankruptcy will affect your US credit.

If she were in Canada I would say your bankruptcy would NOT affect her.   But in the US, I’m not sure.   There is a further potential wrinkle if she is in a communal property state vs a common law state.

Yours truly,
