Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Attorney for Low-Income Individuals
If your household is financially disadvantaged and you find yourself struggling to repay your debts, you may qualify to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
This type of bankruptcy is often referred to as liquidation bankruptcy; however, most people qualify for exemptions that allow them to retain the majority or all of their property/assets even as their debts are discharged.
To be eligible for Chapter 7, you must first pass a means test, which is designed to assess your income and weigh it against the median income in the State of Minnesota. If, over the last six months, your income was lower than the state’s median gross income, you’ll pass the means test and will qualify to file.
When you file for Chapter 7 and your case is successful, all of your dischargeable debts will be completely wiped out, giving you a fresh start financially. You’ll be required to complete a credit counseling course, and from there, you’ll have the opportunity to build your financial future anew.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Lawyer for Low Income Households
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is designed to allow you to pay back either a portion or all of your dischargeable debt according to what you can reasonably afford to pay.
This type of bankruptcy is designed for individuals who have sufficient income to continue paying on their debts but need assistance formulating an affordable schedule of payment.
If you do not qualify to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy — most low income individuals will qualify, however — Chapter 13 is your next best option for getting a fresh financial start.
When you file, your bankruptcy trustee will work with you and your attorney to formulate a three- to five-year debt repayment plan. That plan will require monthly payments toward your debt, and when it reaches its term, you will no longer be responsible for repaying the remainder of your dischargeable debts.
