Bankruptcy law in Nevada
Bankruptcy law in Reno, NV and across the United States is established through the Federal Bankruptcy Code. Recent 2005 changes in bankruptcy laws stiffened eligibility requirements for people filing Chapter 7 and made the bankruptcy process more complicated. Changes in the law now require that debtors:
- Pass a means test (calculation based on the median income in their state) to qualify for Chapter 7
- Receive credit counseling prior to filing for bankruptcy
- Complete an instructional course concerning personal financial management before debt discharge is granted
When considering a bankruptcy in Reno, you need to know which type best suits your financial situation-Chapter 7, 11, or 13. By discussing your finances and evaluating debt issues with a Reno bankruptcy lawyer you can find out whether you meet legal requirements and get advice about the best way to proceed. While Nevada bankruptcy is often a last resort, it provides considerable relief and an opportunity to start over financially.
