1- My STBX & I have decided to file bankruptcy. We’ve been separated since June, but are filing legal separation papers now. We are agreement about the bankruptcy filing and it will be joint. Do you know if there are any issues that will arise since the bankruptcy will be filed after the legal separation papers?
2- In order for our separation to be binding/legal can we just sign the agreement in front of a notary & have it filed at the Register of Deeds or do we have to be seen in front of a judge? If we have to be seen, is there a cost involved with that proceeding?
Thanks in advance for your help!
