Do you meet the requirements for bankruptcy?

Filing for bankruptcy requires that you meet the federal requirements for eligibility. If you are filing for either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, you will need to submit a petition to the court with extensive supporting documentation. You will also need to participate in a U.S. Trustee-approved agency for credit counseling within six months prior to filing your bankruptcy petition, and we can point you in the right direction to get this part of the process completed immediately.

You are required to take the means test. This is a calculation that compares your income to the median income of similarly sized households in our state. You will most likely be eligible to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection if your income is less than the median. Even when your income may initially appear to be above the state's median, you may still qualify after we review your entire financial situation. Chapter 13 bankruptcy may also be a considerable option if your income is higher than the median.
