Each person who filed bankruptcy would have to attend the meeting of creditors, so if both spouses had filed together then both of them would have to appear at the meeting. We have had some occasions where a spouse had fallen ill so we had to ask for their presence to be excused, although those are the exceptions rather than the normal course of operating.
Can One Spouse Be Exempted From Attending If They Had Filed Together?
One spouse could be excused from attending the meeting if there were highly unusual circumstances, such as if the spouse was in the hospital or in a different location or maybe they got deployed since the case was filed so they were out of the country serving in the military.
