Determining Your Eligibility for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
If you are considering filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in West Virginia, Ohio, or Pennsylvania, your income level determines your eligibility. If your current monthly income is less than the median for your state, you are eligible. If it is more, you need to take the bankruptcy means test to determine whether you can file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy or consider Chapter 13 as a more suitable alternative.
As an established bankruptcy lawyer serving clients across the tri-state area, Attorney Isla understands how intimidating this process can be. At Isla Law Offices, our goal is to make the process as simple and easy as possible. We are well-versed in means test calculations and can quickly help you determine your eligibility.
Chapter 7 & Property Exemptions
Federal Chapter 7 bankruptcy laws allow you to protect some personal property from your creditors. Pennsylvania residents have the option to choose either the state’s bankruptcy exemptions or the federal government exemptions based on a person's individual situation, while West Virginia and Ohio filers must follow the state exemptions.
Exempt property may include:
- Equity in your primary home
- Household items
- Life insurance and disability benefits
- Retirement funds
The best way to determine the property you will be entitled to keep is by reviewing your unique circumstances with a Chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyer. In Weirton, Steubenville, and throughout the tri-state area, Isla Law Offices can help you today.
