It’s that time of year again. November 1, 2015 brings new Median Income Levels for Kansas and Missouri Bankruptcy Filers.
The Means Test looks at your Median Income to determine for which Chapter of Bankruptcy you qualify:
Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy?
As of November 1, 2015 the Median Income Levels will changed once again. Median income levels in Kansas are staying pretty steady. There is a slight decrease for smaller families and a fair increase for larger families. However in Missouri, the numbers are up across the board! If your income has been on the border in the past, due to these changes, your ability to file for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy vs a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy might have changed.
