Am I qualified for Chapter 7 bankruptcy?
Chapter 7 bankruptcy makes it possible for you to relieve yourself of nearly all your debts, without the obligation of repayment. To shield creditors from abuse of this powerful legal shelter, the Federal Government has instituted a means test which screens out petitioners whose financial situation does not truly merit the protections of Chapter 7 bankruptcy. It is easy to make mistakes at this step in the bankruptcy process, but with our help you can avoid unnecessarily disqualifying yourself. Even if you are not eligible for Chapter 7, you may still be able to file under Chapter 13.
