Do I Qualify for Bankruptcy?
Price Law Group - Bankruptcy Attorneys
In reality, every person qualifies for
bankruptcy. What is specific to each person is the type of bankruptcy they qualify
for. There are three primary methods of bankruptcy known as
Chapter 11, and
Chapter 13. Chapter 7 involves the full cancellation of most or all of a person's
debts, and often the liquidation of some of their assets in order to fund
the repayment of their creditors. Chapter 13 involves a "creditor
payment plan," in which the person pays off their creditors over
a period of years, in installments. And Chapter 11 is similar to Chapter
13, but is tailored more towards businesses and corporations.
The "new" bankruptcy law passed in 2005 has made it more difficult
for individuals to file for Chapter 7, but those who do not still likely
qualify for Chapter 13. Qualifying for Chapter 7 involves the taking of
a "means test," which compares your average income to the average
income of the state that you live in. If your income falls below that
median, there is a strong chance you will be able to successfully file.
Qualifying for Chapter 13 involves a few restrictions, including a cap
on the amount of debt you can possess, but mostly just demands that you
possess an income in order to fund your payment plan.
