Median income affects filing NJ Bankruptcy both Chapters 7 & 13.

First, let’s look at what is Median income?

Median Income is the amount that divides the income distribution into two equal groups:

  1. Half having income above that amount
  2. Half having income below that amount.

Next, let’s look at where New Jersey median income ranks among other states.   There is an important  relationship between median income and filing bankruptcy in New Jersey.
