Bankruptcy Calgary Edmonton Q&A Forum



I have a common law partner that has previously claimed bankruptcy before we met. can his situation affect my income and what I am allowed to bring into the house hold? Also can someone who has claimed this status work as a subcontractor or contractor? one more if he has gotten off track with paying the bankruptcy what is the consequence of this and how do we get him back on track without it affecting my personal finances.

Hi Katie Your partner's bankruptcy will not affect how much you can earn however he will be required to disclose your earnings to his Trustee which may affect how much he is required to pay into the bankruptcy. You can choose not to disclose your earnings however again this may have an impact on the payments he is required to make to his Trustee. Your partner can work as a subcontractor whilst in bankruptcy. Your partner should contact his Trustee to determine what the his outstanding duties/payments are and I would recommend that you do that without delay.
