Do I Qualify for Bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy eligibility requirements include a review of your assets, income and the means test. If your income falls below the means test requirement, then you would likely qualify for Chapter 7. However, if you have specific tax issues and/or your income is above the means test requirement, you would typically file for Chapter 13.

Our thorough evaluation of your financial situation enables us to provide effective guidance. The factors and formulas necessary to determine Chapter 7 vs. Chapter 13 are complex; even one different factor can make the difference in which bankruptcy plan would take away the most debt. We are committed to helping you achieve the debt relief you deserve.
