Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Houston
Bankruptcy FAQs 2

Bankruptcy Questions:

3. Does my income affect my ability to file bankruptcy?

Higher income individuals may not be eligible to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.  The law requires a Means Test to be applied and if the income exceeds the amounts prescribed, you may not be eligible to file a Chapter 7.  However, you would be eligible to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

4. Can all debts be discharged in a bankruptcy?

There are certain debts that cannot be discharged in a bankruptcy.  Student loans cannot be discharged without a separate determination of hardship.  Debts due to fraud or misrepresentation are also not subject to a discharge.  Although these are the most common, there are other debts such as child support, certain taxes, court ordered restitution and other debts that cannot be discharged.
