Bankruptcy Means Test
Do You Qualify for Federal Consumer Bankruptcy Protection?
Are you interested in qualifying for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in Arizona?
Bankruptcy attorney Martin J. Berkley can tell you what you need to know about the means test — a six-month gross income qualifier for those seeking Chapter 7 bankruptcy debt relief. Under the means test, individuals or families filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy must have gross income lower than the state median income. For households in Arizona, these income levels are as follows:
Arizona Census Median Income Effective 11/01/2014
- Size Annual Monthly Size Annual Monthly
- 1 Earner $43,749 $3,646 5 People $75,900 $6,325
- 2 People $54,236 $4,520 6 People $84,000 $7,000
- 3 People $57,927 $4,827 7 People $92,100 $7,675
- 4 People $67,800 $5,650 8 People $100,200 $8,350
- Additional $8,100 $675

Filing for Bankruptcy? The Berkley Bankruptcy Attorneys Explain Your Options
The “Means” test is detailed and complex. Even if your gross income initially indicates that your income is over the Median income for your household size, you may still qualify for Chapter 7. A skilled and knowledgeable attorney, Martin J. Berkley, will complete the second part of the analysis for an accurate determination of your “Means” test result. And if your means test result indicates that you may not file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, there are other options available that may provide a reasonable and satisfactory resolution of your specific issues. Martin J. Berkley will personally calculate your income, apply the “Means”, and provide an accurate analysis and opinion for you at your initial appointment.
