Couple unable to convert Chapter 7 bankruptcy

When considering filing for bankruptcy in Texas, the options available to individual consumers can lead to a great deal of confusion. For some, Chapter 7 bankruptcy is preferable. For others, Chapter 13 bankruptcy is right for them. When piling the different possibilities on top of the financial challenges that led to the bankruptcy consideration, a person might begin to feel overwhelmed. For those who are confronted with a troublesome financial situation, having a grasp on the differences can be achieved with legal help.

Eligibility to file for Chapter 7 and the means test

Texas residents who are confronted with financial struggles might not want to consider bankruptcy, but it is often the most feasible way to get back into a better position and move forward.

It is necessary to follow the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005. Under this law, only those who earn less than the median amount in their state are able to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Contrary to popular belief, a reorganization under Chapter 11 does not automatically mean that the business is finished and will therefore have no future. In reality, a business bankruptcy under Chapter 11 can help a business get back into a better position to move forward with a debt reorganization and come out stronger than before.
