The Minnesota bankruptcy attorneys from the Neff Law Firm, P.A.'s Roseville office in Ramsey County, and Edina office in Hennepin County have helped many people to evaluate their potential for debt relief under the new bankruptcy law. A debtor can meet with a twin cities bankruptcy attorney from Neff Law Firm, P.A., to help evaluate his or her eligibility for filing bankruptcy in Minnesota.

Many debtors have raised concern that they would not qualify for debt relief under the Bankruptcy Reform Act otherwise known as the new bankruptcy law. There appears to be a common misconception that the so called new bankruptcy law has swept away a consumer's ability to file for bankruptcy relief, when in fact there have been some changes in the law rather than outright elimination of the right to file a bankruptcy. An important change in the new bankruptcy law is the eligibility requirements that apply to chapter 7 filings and the establishment of minimum payment standards in certain circumstances where a chapter 13 is filed. Other requirements have been added as well under the new bankruptcy law—commonly described as the need to obtain a credit-counseling certificate, and complete the required financial management course and obtain a certificate of completion as a requirement to obtain a discharge. In addition, more detailed information with accompanying documentation regarding a debtor’s financial circumstances is required in order to make sure that all of the applicable bankruptcy laws and rules are being met. These changes in the bankruptcy law do not destroy the potential for all consumers to get debt relief. In reality the changes under the new bankruptcy law do not affect many consumers ability to file for Chapter 7 relief. A "means test" has been established under the new law to help determine the eligibility of debtors for filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy relief. This “means test” helps consumers get a clear indication of their ability to receive debt relief through Chapter 7 and must be carefully evaluated in order to determine a consumer’s eligibility for relief under Chapter7. It should be kept in mind that the “means test,” which is often greatly feared by some people, is not something that will necessarily mean the consumer is totally ineligible for any debt relief. Many debtors who have earlier feared being rejected for bankruptcy relief have found after having their case evaluated by an attorney from Neff Law Firm, P.A., that their circumstances allow them to qualify for relief so that they have been worried for nothing about getting help with there serious financial problems.
