No. There may be reasons why it would benefit you both to file together, but the choice is yours individually to make. You cannot be forced to file with your spouse and likewise, you cannot force your spouse to file with you. When you file alone, you are filing “individually”. When you file together, you are filing “jointly”. Everyone’s situation is unique and depends on the type of debt you have and whether or not you both are responsible for the debt, etc. It is important to review the possibilities of filing individually vs jointly to see which way would benefit you both the most.
