Backruptcy

I found a very old post (2006) about this subject but I want to be up-to-date. My wife is in Russia and now we are in the process of her return to US. She is not a citizen. I am a small business owner and have had some serious loss of income (no fault of my own) which is forcing me to consider to file for bankruptcy. What I read on the old post is that bankruptcy should not effect the return of a spouse, what matters is my income today and if I can support her. My income, at the moment, is enough to provide adequate support for her and myself. And actually, she will possibly find employment quickly and bring additional income to the household. Is this information in the old post still good today?

I have put off this bankruptcy for almost 2 years but I have recently had more loss of income. This is due to retail corporate thinking by not supporting small business, no fault of my own.

Can you avoid declaring bankruptcy and just let the statue of limitations expire?

but to answer your question, debts are not a part of the application. As long as you have income (even though it results in losses) that would satisfy the requirements.

What statue-of-limitation's?

After 7 years most debts cannot be collected upon and are wiped from the record. Speak to a lawyer about this, but there are ways to shield your income if you cannot pay without declaring bankruptcy. Think long and hard about bankruptcy and see if there are ways to avoid it.
