How the Means Test Works in Georgia
The Georgia Means Test is used to determine if you are eligible for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. If you pass the test, you will not have to repay any of your debts. If you fail the test, you may be eligible for Chapter 13 bankruptcy instead.
The Means Test is based on your income and expenses from the six months before you filed for bankruptcy. It uses the median income for a household of the same size as your own and compares it to your actual income. If your income is less than the median, you automatically pass the Means Test.
The Means Test requires you to calculate your monthly expenses and compare them to the median. If your expenses are less than the median, you automatically pass the Means Test. If they are higher, you must pay off a portion of your debts before you can file for bankruptcy.
