Who Can File for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?
Whether or not you can file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy hinges on several factors. When you meet with us, attorney Ben Wright will review your income over the past six months to determine if you are above or below the median income level in Phoenix, Arizona.
Your current expenses, including your mortgage, utility payments and other loan payments, also will be considered. If you are under the median threshold amount or your expenses are higher than your income on a monthly basis, you may qualify for Chapter 7. If not, you may still qualify for
Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

foreclosure, wage garnishment and
repossession. Examples of unsecured debt include:
