I receive Social Security and Military Disability and I'm just needing to know if they are usable in filing a Chapter 7. I know Social security is not used and I did not incure any of the debt while in the military, I was discharged in 1971. My wife makes $30,000 more than the states median allowed. According to what I've read, Miliary Dis. is not counted as an income, as far as taxes are concerned, so why would it be counted in a bankruptcy?
I do have a lawyer on a retainment, but have not paid the full fees, because I'm not sure we will go with his firm yet. He said we wouldn't have to take the means test, I called in to his firm and talked to another attorney and he said we'd probably have to count my Military Dis. along with my wifes salary. Debt is credit cards and pay day loans
