Can I file bankruptcy only on my own credit cards without it affecting my husband or my Social Security disability benefits?

All that I want to file bankruptcy on is credit cards that I used mostly during the 4 years I was attempting to get my disability and was unable to work.

Hi - it sounds like you're in a hard spot. The best advice I can give you is to check with a bankruptcy attorney in your local area. You really need legal advice that is specific to your situation. Good luck!

Filing Bk will have no effect on your SSD. Also you probably have no need to file BK as your SS is protected and can't be garnished.
