Bankruptcy Solutions for Individuals 

Bankruptcy, a legal mechanism for those overwhelmed by debt, can offer debtors a beacon of hope. Bankruptcy protection can offer debtors a fresh start, paving the way toward financial recovery and a brighter future.

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy: Commonly called "liquidation bankruptcy," Chapter 7 requires debtors to sell non-exempt assets to pay off creditors. Most unsecured debts, such as credit card balances and personal loans, are discharged upon completion. This option is typically suitable for individuals who cannot repay their debts.
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy: In contrast, Chapter 13 bankruptcy focuses on developing a repayment plan to address some or all your debts over three to five years. This option is ideal for workers with a steady and healthy income that disqualifies them from a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing.

Choosing the right bankruptcy solution depends on your unique financial situation. Both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 offer viable paths to regain control over your finances as you work for a debt-free future.


What is the Bankruptcy Means Test?

One crucial step in determining your bankruptcy options is the means test. This test, mandated by the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005, compares your income to the median income for a household of your size in your state. The primary objective is to assess whether you have the means to repay a portion of your debts through a Chapter 13 repayment plan or if you qualify for a Chapter 7 liquidation bankruptcy.

The bankruptcy means test considers the following points: 

  • Income calculation: The test begins by calculating your average monthly income over the six months preceding your bankruptcy filing. This includes wages, salaries, and other sources of regular income.
  • Comparison with state median income: Your calculated income is then compared to the median income for a household of comparable size in your state. These median income figures are periodically updated and published by the U.S. Census Bureau.
  • Outcome determination:
    • Below median income: If your income falls below the state median, you generally qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, allowing for the discharge of most unsecured debts.
    • Above median income: If your income exceeds the state median, you must proceed to the second part of the test, which involves deducting certain allowable expenses to determine your disposable income. This will help establish whether a Chapter 13 repayment plan is feasible.

Understanding the nuances of the means test can be complex, but it is a critical component of the bankruptcy filing process. Our experienced attorneys are well-versed in navigating this test and can offer personalized advice based on your financial circumstances. They will guide you through each step, ensuring you are fully informed and confident in your path toward financial recovery. By accurately evaluating your eligibility, we can help you make an informed decision that aligns with your long-term financial goals.


Should You Hire an Attorney to File for Bankruptcy?
