How Much Debt Do I Need To File for Bankruptcy?
Are you having difficulty managing your debt? If so, you may be considering filing for bankruptcy. But before you take that life-changing step, it’s important to understand what the requirements are and how much debt is typically needed in order to be able to file for bankruptcy.
At Dolaghan Law, we understand how difficult making such an important decision can be and we offer our expertise in assessing whether or not filing would provide relief from your financial problems!
The Requirements for Filing for Bankruptcy
If you’re struggling financially, you may be asking yourself: “Do I even have enough debt to file for bankruptcy?” And it can be hard to find a clear answer to this question. Ultimately, there is no required amount of debt needed in order to be able to file for bankruptcy.
Rather, it is ultimately determined by the unique financial situation of each person. If you are struggling with debt, it is important to explore all options available and seek professional guidance to determine what route is the best fit for you.
According to Debt.org, “If you have so much debt that you’re considering filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you have enough debt to qualify. The U.S. bankruptcy code doesn’t specify a minimum dollar amount someone must owe to make them eligible for a qualified filing.”
Although there is no required amount of debt needed in order to file for bankruptcy, there are other qualifications that you must meet. A consultation with an experienced consumer bankruptcy attorney is the first place to start. They will be able to determine if you meet the qualifications to file now and/or what steps you may need to take in order to prepare for a future filing.
