Bankruptcy Means Test
To file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you must be able to demonstrate that your household income is beneath the median household income in your state. Even if your income is above the median, however, you may still qualify if you have sufficient deductions.
In certain cases, Chapter 7 bankruptcy may be possible if the remainder of disposable income is insufficient to repay a portion of the unsecured debt. Because of the complexity of these formulas, partnering with a skilled bankruptcy attorney is important in reaching a best possible outcome.
