Means Test in San Jose, CA
If you are considering filing for bankruptcy, it is essential to understand your financial situation to determine if you are eligible for bankruptcy relief. One critical step in this process is completing a Means Test. The Fuller Law Firm, PC provides expert Means Test services to help you understand your options and make informed decisions about your financial future.
What is a Means Test?
A Means Test is a calculation of your income and expenses to determine if you qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. If your income is below the state median income, you may qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. If your income is higher than the state median income, you may still qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, but you will need to pass a second part of the Means Test based on your expenses.
Why do you need a Means Test?
The Means Test is a crucial step in the bankruptcy process because it determines your eligibility for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a powerful tool that can help you eliminate most of your unsecured debts, such as credit card debts and medical bills. However, if you do not pass the Means Test, you may need to file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which requires you to repay some or all of your debts over a period of three to five years.
