Mr. Devon’s petition will fail means test on the basis that he has debts not dischargeable by the chapter 7 of bankruptcy. Domestic support debts and other divorce-related obligations; including property settlement debts (Porter, 2008). Debtors for most educational benefits and student loans not dischargeable unless the court finds that not discharging the debtor will cause undue hardship on the debtor and his or her dependents (Porter, 2008).
Chapter 13 of the bankruptcy law would suit Mr. Devon bankruptcy case. Chapter 13 will enable him protect his home, and have all his other debts discharged at the expense of his mortgage (White &Zhu, 2009). Chapter 13 will help him curb the foreclosure of the mortgage, he also be partially forgiven on the mortgage.
