Bankruptcy Law in Hartford
Trusted Bankruptcy Attorney Helping Hartford Clients Create Brighter Futures
Arriving at the decision to file for bankruptcy is never easy. There are so many factors to consider, and Connecticut bankruptcy laws can be especially difficult to comprehend. If you are thinking about filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, it’s understandable to feel stressed or even embarrassed. That’s why I’ve dedicated my legal practice, Jonathan G. Cohen Law Firm, to serving clients just like you. My goal is to help you explore your options, understand what to expect from the process, and make informed decisions with confidence.
For people struggling with unmanageable debt, Chapter 7 can offer some much-needed relief. Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows you to keep all of your exempt assets while discharging any unsecured debts, such as credit card debt, medical bills, personal loans, and repossessions.
In some cases, people do not meet the Chapter 7 eligibility requirements. Chapter 13 bankruptcy offers you the opportunity to gradually repay your debt using a court-approved payment plan. You may also be able to catch up on secure payments that are in danger of foreclosure or repossession, such as your mortgage or car loan.
