    Answered . Generally yes.
    One spouse can file personal as well as business bankruptcy without involving the other spouse. The reason most couples are recommended to file a joint bankruptcy is because both of them might be in debt, or the other spouse might have co-signed many of the debts. It's cheaper to file one joint bankruptcy than two separate individual ones.

    Otherwise, it is not a problem.
