Are You Eligible to File for Bankruptcy in Colorado?
Although bankruptcy is governed by federal law, the state in which you file can make a difference. Different states have different protections for your personal property and assets.
In order to file for bankruptcy in Colorado, the law requires you to have spent the better part of the past six months (180 days) living in our state. In other words, the law allows most people to file for bankruptcy in Colorado if they have lived here for more than 90 days. Even if you have not lived here for 90 days, you should still contact us to get started on creating a bankruptcy plan.
Bankruptcy Law and Eligibility in Colorado
The 2005 bankruptcy law introduced what is known as the “means” test. Essentially, this limits the ability of consumers to file for a bankruptcy under Chapter 7 unless they meet specific income requirements that are based on the state’s median income. We can guide you through the law, explain your options and provide informed legal advice on your personal financial issues.
