Helping clients File Bankruptcy in Danbury, Greenwich, Fairfield and Across Connecticut
Many Connecticut consumers incorrectly believe that they cannot obtain debt relief through bankruptcy since the new federal bankruptcy code went into effect in October 2005. Here at the law offices of Mark M. Kratter, LLC, we know that bankruptcy is still an option for qualified individuals and small businesses.

Offering Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Services
If you are you unable to pay your bills, you may be able to get out from under the burden of debt by filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
When you file Chapter 7 bankruptcy, all qualifying debt is discharged. This provides individuals with a fresh start and can also be used by businesses that wish to liquidate and terminate their business quickly. During an initial consultation, we will review your situation to help you understand if you would qualify for Chapter 7 debt relief services.
Handling Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Proceedings
It may be time to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy and seek confirmation of a Chapter 13 bankruptcy plan. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is designed to help individuals with regular income who want to pay their debts but are currently unable to do so. In Chapter 13, under court supervision and protection, the debtor proposes and carries out a repayment plan under which debts are paid, in full or in part, over a three- to five-year period. You will generally be able to keep your house, car and other belongings. Once Chapter 13 has been filed, creditors may not start or continue collection efforts.
Representing Small Businesses and Individuals in Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Proceedings
Are you or your small business overwhelmed with unsecured debt? Chapter 11 bankruptcy is used by small businesses to reorganize their finances and reduce debt. In a Chapter 11 bankruptcy, unsecured debt can be eliminated in whole or part. Assets can be preserved through repayment plans. Businesses and individuals may resume operations from a better position.
