A person's income does not count after filing chapter 7 bankruptcy. All that counts is what you had before filing bankruptcy.

You must be generating a steady income to file chapter 13 bankruptcy, regardless of whether it is earned income. If you don't currently have income, chapter 7 most likely is the better way to file bankruptcy. There is an excellent book that gives you a substantial perspective on filing chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy: "The New Bankruptcy, will it work for You?", 3rd edition, by Stephen Elias (published in 2009 by Nolo) -- I found it in the Colorado Springs public library at 346.078 E42N (Dewey decimal system).

As long as you have not recently transferred assets to your bf to become insolvent, it would be a great time to file Chapter 7. If you are living with him, his income will count towards the means test, so if his income is above the annual median family income for your state, you may have to file a Chapter 13. Be sure to check with an experienced bankruptcy lawyer.

What is the means test to file bankruptcy?

One of the first steps you must take when filing for bankruptcy is to complete a "means" test. You must submit the results of this means test to the Bankruptcy Court. The means test checks your income in order to determine your eligibility to file for bankruptcy. If your income is below the average for your state, then you can file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy without any problems. However, if your income is above the state average, the calculations for the means test become more complex. The means test looks at your disposable income (the amount left over after paying your expenses). If your disposable income is too high, the Bankruptcy court may decide that you can pay off at least some of your debts, and prevent you from filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. You are still able to file Chapter 13 bankruptcy, however.

How much income is too much for chapter 7?

Income has little to no determination on one's ability to file for bankruptcy. It's the debt to income ratio that most bankruptcy courts look for. Consult a bankruptcy attorney; there may be other options that will not impact your credit as harshly as bankruptcy.
