Nassau County Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Lawyer

Chapter 7, often called a "fresh start," "clean slate," or "liquidation" bankruptcy, allows individuals to discharge unsecured debt and begin anew, allowing for the foundation of a stable and secure financial future.

Filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy may not be the best method of filing if you own significant property, including real estate or vehicles — Chapter 7 can force you to give up this property.

In addition, the ability to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy is contingent on whether or not you pass the means test. To pass the test, your household income must be less than the median household income of the same size in your state. In New York, the breakdown is as follows:

Number of Persons in HouseholdMedian Income
One person$45,931
Two people$56,113
Three people$66,953
Four people$81,212
For each additional personAdd $7,500

If your household is not below the thresholds, you still may be eligible if your remaining disposable income is not sufficient to repay a portion of unsecured debt.
