Generally, credit card issuers require that both the employer and employee remain liable for charges on a corporate card. Most likely, your government-issued card has a similar shared-liability system. Check any paperwork you filled out when being issued your card to be sure. If this is the case, you would have to include this credit card in your bankruptcy. However, you may be able to avoid its inclusion if it has a zero-balance when you file your bankruptcy. Check with a bankruptcy attorney to determine if and how this would apply to you.
