equity in home
If a client qualifies for a chapter 7 under means test income, but has approx. $10,000 in un-exempt equity in her home, would she need to file a ch. 13 to protect the equity?

Re: equity in home
Probably - a Ch. 7 trustee would probably sell the house for that equity. But make sure there is really equity after costs of sale; if not, a 7 is probably safe. And you need to be sure of the value to be safe with a 7. See an experienced bankruptcy lawyer who can advise you.
