I have some premarital debt and no joint debt with my husband, am I able to file bankruptcy on my premarital debt in SC?

Lancaster, SC |

I have credit card debt, student loan debt, and that is all, but I have no job & no assets associated with my name ie cars & house are all in my husbands name & we have no joint debt. All together I have maybe between 30 and 40k dollars of premarital debt.

  1. Yes, you can file on your own. Your husband is not required to file. I am assuming that there have been no recent asset transfers from you to your husband, either before or after your marriage, since that would raise other issues.
