Means Test Used to Determine How You Can Gain a Fresh Start

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is designed to provide financial relief for anyone dealing with unmanageable debt and making less than the median income for households of similar size in Indiana. A means test will be used to determine if you qualify for Chapter 7 debt relief.

A mathematical formula will be used to compare your average monthly gross income over the past six months against households similar in size. This would exclude any payments you have received for Social Security or child support.

Even if your income level is more than the median in Indiana, you may qualify for Chapter 7 relief, if Mr. Halbert can prove that mitigating factors have affected your financial situation. However, even if you do not qualify Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you may be eligible for relief through Chapter 13 bankruptcy. This form of consumer bankruptcy is designed to help individuals and families who are inundated with debt but have significant assets they would like to maintain.
