Understanding the bankruptcy means test

If you, like many others across Louisiana, find yourself struggling under mounting debt and financial pressure, you may be wondering if filing for bankruptcy might give you the fresh start you desperately need. While you may be somewhat familiar with the terms “Chapter 7” and "Chapter 13,” you may not fully understand the specifics about the two types of filings or know which route might be best for your circumstances.

Documents you will need to file for bankruptcy

There are a number of reasons why people need to file for bankruptcy. People may need to file because they lost their jobs or a family member experienced a medical emergency. According to the court website, approximately 115 people in central Louisiana file for Chapter 7 pr Chapter 13 bankruptcy every month.
