Can I File Without My Spouse?

Yes, if the debt in question is yours and yours alone. If, for example, you have debt on credit cards that are in your name only, you can file alone. However, since you are married and presumably jointly own a home or other property with your spouse, your spouse’s financial information will need to be reported on bankruptcy documents.
