Bill founded his family law firm Neal Ashmore  five years ago with great enthusiasm and ideas. Among other things, the firm brings in a personal trainer… [read post]

How a self-employed debtor calculates Current Monthly Income (CMI) on the Means Test can determine the applicable commitment period (three or five years) in a Chapter 13 case.
