I am going through a chapter 7 bankruptcy. My husband and I decided this was the best course of action because the vast majority of our debt was in my name only. We have one joint account that we intend to pay off after my discharge. But several of my creditors have told me that the military could discipline him, deny him a promotion, or even discharge him if they find out his wife has gone through a bankruptcy. Is this legal? I know that my bankruptcy can affect his credit because of the joint debt we accrued, but he is paying off the debts that are in his name.
