There is no minimum or maximum amount of income to file a bankruptcy, but what matters greatly is the amount of disposable income that remains after expenses that are reasonable and necessary for the support of you and your family, which will affect which Chapter of bankruptcy you should file. If you have disposable income, you will likely be required to file a Chapter 13 or 11, but if you do not, you may qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. In a Chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy, you will usually be required to prepare and file a form referred to as the “Means Test” that helps determine what your disposable income is. Because the correct preparation of this document requires skill and experience, we recommend that you contact an attorney to determine which Chapter of bankruptcy is best for you.
