Obtaining Full Relief Through Experienced Chapter 7 Means Testing

The new Bankruptcy Code provides standardized median income numbers for each family size under which numbers full Chapter 7 relief is available. Additionally, Chapter 7 allows further protection under the new "means testing" guidelines for higher income individuals and families that our attorneys can qualify for Chapter 7 eligibility.

Means Testing is a complicated comparison of "household income" vs. "allowable expenses" calculated over the trailing six months. Means testing utilizes standard amounts for "allowable deductions" on certain expenses with overrides for "actual deductions" on special types of monthly expenses, like mortgage payments, car payments, support obligations and other more important household expenses.
