What are the basic rules to file Chapter 7?

Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy litigation attorney here to assist you.


The basic rule to be eligible for filing Chapter 7 is the Means Test, which is a calculation of your income in relation to the median income of your county and state. You can take a Means Test online to determine your eligibility: (this is just one example of several means test calculators online).


If you qualify under the test, you should be able to file.


Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
