We married in June of 2013. We are both around 60. We decided to sell his house and move into mine. We have no joint credit cards, the house is in my name, so is my car. I recently found out his FICO score is 537, he owes the IRS $25,000 from 2008 & 2009, and he has credit card debt which he brought into the marriage. I want him to file bankruptcy. Will the IRS debt be forgiven? Will he be able to keep his car (heavily financed) in order to get to work? How will his bankruptcy affect me?
