Why the Number of People in Your Household is so Important
According to the federal government, there are certain median income levels for each household size. Currently, the average (or median) income for a household of three is: $63,566.00 (based on August 2016 figures). This means that if your particular household income is below that level, it is possible that you would qualify for a St. Louis Chapter 7 bankruptcy. But if your household income is substantially higher than the above-mentioned level, it is quite possible that you would only qualify for a St. Louis Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
This being the case, it is important to disclose how many people live in your household. This number can make a significant difference in what chapter of St. Louis bankruptcy you may file, or in determining how much of your unsecured debt you must pay back.
