Eligibility for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Before you can file under Chapter 7, you must take certain steps to show that you have tried to improve your financial situation. Certificates showing your completion must be presented to the court before your bankruptcy petition will be accepted.

Steps to take before filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy include:

  • Complete a consumer credit counseling consultation from an approved counseling agency
  • Complete a personal financial management course from an approved counseling agency
  • Determine if you pass the means test

Fulfilling all these requirements can be complicated and time-consuming. Working with a skilled Chapter 7 bankruptcy attorney in Portland from Vanden Bos & Chapman, LLP will help. We have been guiding clients through the process since 1981, and we are here for you as well.
