Chapter 7 is the chapter of the bankruptcy code providing for "liquidation," that is, the sale of a debtor's nonexempt property and the distribution of the proceeds to creditors. In order to be eligible for Chapter 7, the debtor must satisfy a means test. The court will evaluate the debtor's income and expenses to determine if the debtor may proceed under Chapter 7.
