Im thinking of going bankrupt. Debts of circa 10 k. I live

This answer was rated:

I'm thinking of going bankrupt. Debts of circa 10 k. I live in rented accommodation. My wife has a mortgage on a property that her daughter lives in. She commenced on this mortgage before she knew me and I have no financial involvement in the property. But will it be safe from the courts?
Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.

My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.

If you were to make yourself bankrupt, the Trustee in Bankruptcy can only come against your assets. Your Wife's property, is therefore totally safe.

I hope this assists you.

All the best.

Kind Regards
