Q: I posted a question earlier and got the answer but I made a mistake (paying for home insurance)
I mean paying for the home warranty for the appliances in the house. He pays for home insurance and property taxes.. Its his home after all not mine. Does this changes anything?
Correcting Prior post: I live with my BF in his paid off home and his income is SSD. I pay all the expenses in the house including food, utility and home warranty for the appliances in the house. question, is my BF income need to be included with my income in chapter 7? All the debits are mine and under my name . He is not filling for bankruptcy either
A: If your boyfriend is considered part of your household, his income is needed for the means test. I am not saying he is or isn't, but is a question specific to your jurisdiction. Your attorney would know. If your attorney has asked for the income, then it's probably needed.
