In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, there are some qualifications to determine if you are eligible for this type of bankruptcy. You must make less than the median income in your specific area to qualify, however, if you make the median income or more than the median income, there are additional means tests that involve measuring your disposable income to see if you can still qualify for Chapter 7.
In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which is sometimes referred to as “wage-earners” bankruptcy, all of your unsecured debts are organized into one group with one payment. That payment is based on your income each month, with the majority of that income going towards paying off your unsecured debts over 3 to 5 years. You will still be able to afford mandatory living expenses such as a car payment, house payment and utility bills with money that is set aside each month for these expenses.
