Do I Qualify for Bankruptcy

Qualifying for Bankruptcy in The Greater Bay Area

Many people facing the burden of debt and considering bankruptcy may be concerned about whether or not they will qualify. Given how much information is on the Internet about bankruptcy, and how much of that information is inaccurate, people may be left confused and worried about what options they have.

In reality, qualifying for either Chapter 13 , 11 or Chapter 7 is based upon several factors regarding family income, family size and expenses. This process is defined as “means testing” and involves a thorough accounting of what you make, what you own and what you owe.
