When converting from a Chapter 13 to a Chapter 7, the debtor is supposed to use the income for the 6 months before the conversion, not for the 6 months prior to originally filing the Chapter 13.
I think this is what you wanted to know. If not, please let me know.
What I meant is could the child support income still keep me out of Chapter 7?
When you fill out the Form 22A Means Test, you would enter the average of the amounts you actually received each month, not the amount you are supposed to receive. This means you would add the total amount received in the 6 months before the conversion request, divide that amount by 6, and that is the amount you would enter on line 8.
If you need help figuring out the amount to enter on line 8, please let me know.
