cortrightlaw : It depends on your state and the number of people in your family along with some other factors, what is your family's gross income and how many dependents do you have.
JACUSTOMER-jm13vyga- :

I make $45,000 and have no dependents

JACUSTOMER-jm13vyga- :


cortrightlaw : You will probably qualify but it will be close, some other factors will come into play such as a car payment or house payment, if you go to they have a good means test calculator that you can enter your information into and it will let you know if you qualify.

So you can't satisfactorily answer this question?

cortrightlaw : I think I gave you the appropriate answer, no one can tell you for sure without completing the means test and that exceeds what can be done on this site, so you need to either complete an online means test or go meet with a bankruptcy attorney.
