Understanding the Means Test
In order to qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you must prove that your income over the previous six months is below the state median income. However, figuring out your income is not cut-and-dry. The bankruptcy code allows people to make a number of deductions from their gross income.
Our attorneys will look closely at your financial situation, including your gross income, deductions and deductions. This will allow us to quickly determine whether you can qualify for Chapter 7 or if we should turn out attention to helping you file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
