Moses Lake, WA asked in Bankruptcy for Washington

Q: We have jointly owned car and rv he only owns half the house. How can we fix this? Ex wife not cooperative.

In bankruptcy involving ex-wife, dual ownership of the home, we have jointly owned vehicle and RV that have loans. Don't mind losing the rv, but where we live a car is necessary. 1. Would he lose the whole house even if it jointly owned with the ex-wife? 2. Would we be able to keep the car? If there is a bankruptcy, we would be able to make the car payments. 3. There is alimony involved, how would that be affected? His ex-wife is not willing to work with him. 4. Would he be able to claim bankruptcy if the present wife had one not too long ago? I believe it is 6 yrs. He is over 65 if that information helps. I am 63.
