An excellent explanation of how the means test works:

From the article posted above on the means test:

"...In a year and a half of working with the means test, I’ve had only 2 families who wanted to file Chapter 7 excluded by the means test. The UST in the Eastern District of California recently recounted that their office only succeeded in knocking a fraction of one percent of filers out of Chapter 7. The means test may well be a paper tiger."

This is important because the general public is made to believe (maybe on purpose) that the means test will knock you out if you have decent income. Not generally the case...
