Important Facts about Bankruptcy
In order to be eligible for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your situation has to meet several criteria. Your income must be under a certain amount unless you can pass a “means test.” You may not file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy if you’ve filed a previous one a certain period of time. In addition, if the court determines that you are cheating your creditors, your case will be dismissed.
