What is the purpose of the means test for Chapter 7 bankruptcy?

Consumers in Kentucky who have experienced unanticipated financial hardships due to loss of employment, medical emergencies or other misfortunes may be exploring their options under the Bankruptcy Code. If Chapter 7 seems the best solution for their circumstances, a means test will determine whether they qualify or whether they must file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
