Will I pass the means test?
The means test is a part of Chapter 7 bankruptcy. It acts as an evaluative method for determining an applicant’s eligibility to file for bankruptcy. Every person’s case is different, so it’s actually quite difficult to know for sure who will pass the means test. However, most people who are facing significant debts with no way to pay them off in their current situation or who otherwise demonstrate extreme need for financial intervention often pass and qualify for bankruptcy. The means test is largely in place to ensure that dishonest people don’t take advantage of the benefits of filing for bankruptcy.
