There are two places to indicate if the debtor has an exemption from the presumption of abuse in NextChapter:

  • Client Profile > Filing Information > Nature of Debt
  • Means Test >  Exemption from Presumption 

If an exemption is indicated in any of these sections, no further information will need to be completed in the Means Test section and Form 122A-1Supp Statement of Exemption from Presumption of Abuse Under § 707(b)(2) will be included in the packet. 

  • Means Test >  Means Test Qualifier 

If a red thumbs down appears, a presumption of abuse arises and you will need to complete the Means Test

If a green thumbs up appears, there is no presumption of abuse you do not need to complete the Means Test
