Household members and bankruptcy in Maryland.

Asked 11 months ago - Silver Spring, MD

What approach does the Maryland bankruptcy courts use to determine household size? Do elderly parents who live with you and financially depend on you count as household members? What if you have another immediate relative (e.g., sister) that does not live with you but relies on your ongoing financial support?

    Answered . Household size based on "heads on the bed". The support of a family member who doesn't live with you wouldn't count in the household size, but you may be able to include it as an expense under support of others.
