If I file bankruptcy while I'm still married to my STBX, will his credit be affected?

Yes. And I think he would have to willingly do it with you. FYI that will be two major hits on your credit between bankruptcy and a divorce.

Only if you file on your joint accounts.

If you have $20,000 in medical bills that are yours alone then NO.

However if you file under a car that is both your names, credit cards, and the medical bills then yes.

I think it depends on the state, in my state a married couple does not have to file jointly, and we are not a community property state, so no it wouldnt hurt his credit

So if you have no joint accounts together, i.e., credit cards, revolving credit and the like, you can file bankruptcy separately?
