What is personal bankruptcy?

The two most common forms of personal bankruptcy in Connecticut are Chapter 13 and Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Each requires you to determine which of your assets are exempt. In Chapter 7 filings, your non-exempt assets may be liquidated as part of your bankruptcy filing to pay off your creditors, often at a much lower balance than what you currently owe. In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the value of your non-exempt assets is used to develop a repayment plan. Upon successful completion of your repayment plan, any remaining eligible debts are discharged, meaning you don't have to pay them. An example of an exempt asset may be your primary residence or your car.

Whether you are filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, a knowledgeable Stamford bankruptcy lawyer can help you through every stage of the bankruptcy process, by acting as your representative and counsel and fighting for a favorable outcome.
