When you file bankruptcy, you are required to complete a current monthly budget.  This will be performed with your attorney.  This budget will be based on your current monthly income and your regular monthly expenses.  This current monthly income is more than just that paid to you by your employer and will include any income received in the past 6 months commencing with the first full month before your bankruptcy filing.  This could include some types of government assistance, unemployment, or side jobs or other sources.  The regular expense should be as close as possible and should be based on a reasonable inquiry.
