With a chapter 7, you have to disclose all income during the 6 months prior to filing. If you got a large vacation pay, you may have to time the filing to qualify for the chapter 7 if you push above the median income and don't pass the means test. Unemployment may count towards the budget test as well, but there is some caselaw out there saying it isn't, but not in IL so that is a small risk. Give me a call, as I practice in IL, and we'd be happy to give you a free consultation about your case.
