Means Test Eases April 1, 2016



On April 1, 2016, the income numbers used to calculate the bankruptcy means test will increase modestly in Kansas. Filing bankruptcy will be a little easier for debtors in all Kansas household sizes.

Here are the new numbers:

KANSAS 1 earned


2 people


3 people


4 people


Add $8,400 for each person in excess of 4.

Don’t fret if you make more money than these guidelines. You may still pass the means test. The consumer bankruptcy law specialists at Neis & Michaux, will figure this out and discuss your options with you.
