The means test that’s applied for Chapter 7 bankruptcy looks at the previous six months’ earnings, so it’s unlikely that a new job would impact your eligibility for Chapter 7.
The money you earn from a new job, however, is likely to be a huge advantage to you and your family.
Bankruptcy protection isn’t intended to cause you to impoverish your family to meet eligibility requirements for Chapter 7.
There are situations where a new job may adversely affect your ability to pursue bankruptcy the way you want to.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino help families in Queens deal with debt problems and move on from burdens they can’t live with.
