Chapter 7 in Mississippi Bankruptcy Courts After Means Testing and Median Income Tests
Before filing, a little introspection regarding rights, expectations and duties of a debtor usually prevents rash choices. The benefits of filing either Chapter 7 or chapter 13 with the Mississippi Bankruptcy Courts are undoubtedly valuable, yet available only to those people who are legally qualified to file. In a major departure from past traditions, qualification for Chapter 7 is now regulated by means testing requirements, maximum income limitations (state median), minimum debt restrictions, and formulaic exclusions. Any malfeasance attempting to manipulate qualification draws quick and severe sanctions from the court.

Ersatz claims, although considered a scatological attempt to abuse financially feeble debtors, are nevertheless a common annoyance in consumer cases. New bankruptcy laws create mandatory reprisal upon debtors and their personal attorneys who file unfounded claims or frivolous motions, yet new reform amendments conspicuously omit reciprocal requirements for creditors and their attorneys.
