In 2005, The Bankruptcy Code was revised, making it more difficult and sometimes impossible for many debtors to obtain relief under Chapter 7 of The Bankruptcy Code. Disabled veterans were excepted from some of the new eligibility requirements that affected most debtors. If you are a disabled veteran who became disabled while serving your country, and your debts were primarily incurred during a period of active duty/homeland defense activity, you may be eligible for a discharge under Chapter 7 without having to satisfy the other requirements under the Means Test. What does this mean? It means that because of your status as a disabled veteran, you may qualify for a Chapter 7discharge even if your income would usually disqualify you from receiving relief.
