Beaverton Bankruptcy: How to qualify for Bankruptcy in Oregon

Portland and surrounding area guidelines for qualifying for Chapter 7 bankruptcy:

  • Earn under the medium income as outlined for your household size as set forth in Oregon by the United States Trustee Program
  • Filed or able to file your taxes
  • You cannot have filed another bankruptcy, Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 in Oregon or another State in the last 6-8 years. (with some exceptions). 
  • Able to account for all your assets and income in and outside of Oregon
A lot of Oregon residents elect for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. No matter what city you live in, for for example Beaverton, Hillsboro or Tigard --  your bankruptcy case will be out of the Portland Oregon Bankruptcy Court.  However, if you reside in Springfield, Salem or Eugene, your bankruptcy petition will be managed by the Bankruptcy Court in Eugene.  Most Oregon debtors filing for a Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 will not lose very much of their assets when it is all said and done.   This is due to the Oregon State bankruptcy exemptions, which your Beaverton bankruptcy attorney can fill you in on. 

Sometimes, even if you qualify for Chapter 7 filing in Oregon, you may opt instead for a Chapter 13 to submit to the Portland or Eugene Oregon Bankruptcy Court. This applies to those with a considerable amount of property to be protected such as home equity and wish for the repayment plan that the Chapter 13 filing offers.
