My question involves bankruptcy in the state of: IL
I live with my parents and I am looking to file Chapter 7. I am currently unemployed and have absolutely no work income (my mom does help me out by giving me money to pay my car payment).
I understand that filing for bankruptcy can be a confusing and lengthy process. I believe, however, that this is based on a person's household income and not the person's individual income. While I myself would be considered very impoverished, my parents would not. I have under $50k in debt and have no assets.
I would also like to apply to have the filing fee waived once I do file for Chapter 7. The application requests my family size but only asks about myself, my spouse, and my dependents. Because I have neither a spouse nor dependents, I indicated my family size as 1 - meaning that only my income ($0) is supporting me. Do my parents have anything to do with "family size?"
So for household size/income/expenses, do I report it for myself only or do I include my parents too?
