Am I Eligible To File Bankruptcy?

It makes no sense to muse about whether bankruptcy might be a good option for you if you don’t even know whether you would qualify. One of the first questions that must be answered if you are facing serious financial problems is:

Am I eligible to file bankruptcy in North Carolina?

Our lawyers have more than 40 years of combined legal experience. We can help you determine whether bankruptcy is the right choice for you and whether you should file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Call 919-382-3065 or email us to talk to an attorney from Wootton & Wootton, P.C.

Determining Eligibility For Bankruptcy

You have the right to file. It is provided for in the Constitution. You will be granted bankruptcy relief, however, only if you qualify. If your debts are higher than your income every month, you most likely qualify for bankruptcy. In fact, for most people, it is more a question of which type of bankruptcy they qualify for rather than whether they qualify at all.

  • Do you qualify? You most likely do. Our lawyers will look over your financial details with you to be sure.
  • Which type of bankruptcy? Our attorneys will help you determine whether Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy would be a better choice for you. The means test is one of the most important first step to determining which chapter is best.
  • How to file for bankruptcy? We will help you through the entire process, from the free initial consultation to the final discharge of your debts.
