Since Chapter 7 Bankruptcy completely wipes out debt, there are stringent standards. Qualifying for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is well defined, and is not determined by the bankruptcy lawyer. The United States Bankruptcy Code sets the qualifications for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy.

Before filing a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, you will need to qualify for Chapter 7. In short, the qualifications for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy are:

  • No bankruptcy discharge in the previous six to eight years (depending on the type of bankruptcy)
  • Qualify under the Chapter 7 Means Test

Filing for the wrong type of bankruptcy can have a dramatic affect on your life. Speak with bankruptcy attorney J.D. Graham to learn about the options available to you and which type of bankruptcy best suits your specific circumstances.
