If you are married can you still file chapter 7 bankruptcy?

A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy happens when you accumulate so much debt to creditors that you file to have your assets sold off to pay off the debt. The way it works is that the courts appoint a trustee to oversee your estate and to seize control of any assets that could be used to settle a debt by liquidating them. Filing for Chapter 7 can be done as an individual, or as a jointed couple.
