Filing Bankruptcy in Utah
Do I qualify for Bankruptcy?
The question is not whether you “qualify” for filing bankruptcy in Utah. Instead, the question is “Do I need to file for bankruptcy” or “Should I file for Bankruptcy”? Everyone qualifies for bankruptcy (Chapter 7, Chapter 11, Chapter 13, etc.), but not everyone needs to file. We do not recommend bankruptcy for a significant portion of the people with whom we meet. We regularly recommend other debt relief alternatives.
The bankruptcy changes passed in 2005 were intended to make it more difficult for individuals to file bankruptcy. Most people, however, who were qualified prior to the 2005 amendments, will still qualify to file under the Utah Chapter 7 Bankruptcy requirements.
Utah Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Requirements
Generally, the only Utah Chapter 7 bankruptcy requirement is qualify under the means test. If your gross annual household income is at or below the Utah median family income level, it is presumed that you qualify to file bankruptcy Utah.
