Community property works differently in bankruptcy. I probably don’t have to tell you that.
On the issue of assets and debts, community property is pretty straightforward. All of the community property comes into the estate upon the commencement of a bankruptcy case, even when only one spouse files. §541(a)(2).
Every creditor with a right to be paid from the community can file a claim, regardless of which spouse incurred the debt. It looks like you are not signed in or registered! This content is only available to members.
