Bankruptcy Eligibility in Illinois
The means test determines your eligibility to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy relief. The test uses your annual household income from the past six months. If you are below the median income for a household of your size, then you qualify to file for Chapter 7. The median income changes regularly. Please contact us to find out what the current median income is for your household size in Illinois.
If you are over the median income for a household of your size, you may still qualify for Chapter 7, but you must complete a longer form of the means test. There are also several other qualifying factors.
If you do not qualify for Chapter 7 based on the means test, then you may wish to consider filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
