I live with my boyfriend, we have a daughter, and since she was born I have been a stay at home mom. I talked to an attorney before our daughter was born about doing bankruptcy and at the time I was making $400/month. The attorney wanted my boyfriend's name and income to add to my bankruptcy filing. We don't want his name on anything because he filed bankruptcy 10 years ago and his credit is doing awesome, we're afraid that with his name on my bankruptcy he will be dinged also.
Why do they need my boyfriend's name and income for my bankruptcy? Should I lie and say I live with a friend?
