When Can You File for Bankruptcy?

When deciding whether you should file for bankruptcy, you should ask yourself: Will I be able to pay off my debts in under 5 years? If not, you may want to consider filing for bankruptcy. In order to file, you will have to meet the following qualifications:

For Chapter 7 Bankruptcy:

  1. You must make under the median income for a family your size in North Carolina
  2. You must be unable to pay your bills (this is known as the means test)

For Chapter 13 Bankruptcy:

  1. You must have a steady source of income
  2. You must have unsecured debts less than $465,275
  3. You must have secured debts less than $1,395,875

How Much Does it Cost to File for Bankruptcy?

While it isn’t free to file for bankruptcy, the fees you must pay are usually very minimal compared to the debt that you will be ridding yourself of. Fees for filing vary depending on what type of bankruptcy you’re filing for (fees reflect charges as of December 1, 2020):

Along with these filing fees you will also need to pay an attorney fee. If you want to learn more about our rates, you can call our team at (704) 842-9776 or contact us online.

What Are the Benefits of Declaring Bankruptcy?

While filing for bankruptcy may feel like a defeat in some situations, there are several pros in filing for bankruptcy:

  • It gives you a fresh start financially by being forgiven for any unsecured debts
  • This forces collectors to stop coming after you for unpaid debts
  • This allows you to maintain many of your personal assets rather than having them taken away by collectors in an effort to satisfy your debts

By choosing to file for bankruptcy, you can allow yourself the opportunity to start over without the burden of debt.

Chapter 7 Benefits

Facing severe debt? Below are some benefits when it comes to filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy:

  • Certain debts are eliminated, allowing you to achieve a “fresh start”.
  • There is no repayment plan after debt is discharged.
  • It is quick -- discharge happens in as little as 3 months.
  • Property you acquire after filing is not included in the liquidation.
  • There is no limit to the debt you can have. Chapter 13 has debt limits that stop you from filing.
