Can I file for bankruptcy without information from my ex? 4 Answers as of August 30, 2010I am in the middle of a very nasty, costly divorce. I am going to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy because of the mounting legal fees, credit card debt, and medical debt that I owe. I have not directly spoken to my ex wife in well over a year. Can I file for Chapter 7 without notifying her?

If you are already divorced, you have no obligation to notify her of anything except to the extent that she has any potential or actual claim against you for anything (e.g. alimony, support, equalization payments, etc.).
