Terry L. :

Hi, thanks for your question. You should hire a lawyer for specific legal advice. No attorney client relationship is created here.

Terry L. :

If over the median, then applicable commitment period is 60 months, unless the debtor is proposing to pay 100% of all claims in less than 60 months.
