If your income is higher, a Louisiana Bankruptcy Attorney can help you complete additional "means testing". In general the means testing will review your ability to pay your creditors by subtracting certain expenses such as your house payment, car payment, taxes owed and a certain amount of school tuition from your income. If you income minus these expenses leaves you enough disposable income to pay up to $6,000 or $100 per month to your unsecured creditors in the next sixty months, you will most likely have to file Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. If you fail this test, but you have enough remaining disposable income to pay 25% toward debt repayment in the next 60 months, you still may have to file Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. This is general information. It is important to have a Louisiana Bankruptcy Attorney analyze your income and perform the means tests to determine if you can file Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
