You Can Still File Bankruptcy

It is true that in October 2005, Congress passed sweeping changes to the bankruptcy laws. Under these laws, people who wish to discharge unsecured debts through Chapter 7 bankruptcy must pass a “means test,” which takes into account an applicant’s income, expenses, and total debt. While these laws make it more difficult to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy, many people and businesses still qualify for this type of relief.

If you do not qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you may still file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. This debt reorganization plan is designed for applicants with an income who wish to protect certain assets or pay a percentage of what they owe to creditors.

The 2005 laws also require applicants to participate in a government-approved credit counseling program prior to filing bankruptcy. Before you can file a bankruptcy case and any debt is eliminated, you must receive a credit counseling certificate from an approved agency. Before completion of your case, you must complete a simple financial management course. Our attorneys can help you find an approved agency and financial management course to fulfill these requirements.
