I am engaged and my fiancee just lost a property (joint with his brother) through foreclosure. We havent "set the date" for getting married due to a few situations. We have some assets joint (bank account and 1 car. No joint credit cards. Home and another car is solely in my name as an unmarried woman.) He recently got served for an unsecured credit card debt of less than 5K and then he has his forclosure on his credit. He does work but his wages are enough to pay our mortgage (in my name) and our bills. pg&e, car insurance, etc. which some are in his, and some are in my name alone, not joint. Is this going to affect me and my credit for when we do get married? and if he does file for bankruptcy, can they take OUR joint assets? Is it necessary to close and remove all assets that are joint?
