Is There Any State that Allows You Not to Show up To Court in A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

Feb. 22, 2016

The only way for one of you to show up is for only one of you to file. If you file a single Chapter 7 then your husband will not have to appear at the 341 hearing but that means that he will still be individually liable for his debts. The community will receive a discharge so his creditors cannot collect from community property assets but if you ever divorce he and his single property will be liable for his debts. If you choose to file jointly you both have to show up.
