It depends. If the income is too high compared to expenes, it may disqualify the debtor from Chapter 7. If Chapter 13 is done, disposable (net) income must be dedicated to the plan of repayment. NOTE: You really need to discuss this with a BK lawyer. The question is too broad for a simple yes or no answer.
