What do I Put on my Bankruptcy if some of by debts are under my maiden name?

By Ullian Associates of The Law Firm of Ullian & Associates, P.C. on April 14, 2015

You should list your current and married name on your bankruptcy petition. The first page of the bankruptcy petition has a line below your name for all other names. If you maiden name was Mary Jones, you should include "formally known as Mary Jones" in this section. By putting both names on the bankruptcy petition, your creditors will be aware of your filing and you will be discharged on any debts under either name without any confusion. This line can also be used to list any prior married names or nicknames you may be known by. For example if your name is John A. Smith, but some of your bills come to John Smith, Jr., you should list that name as well.
