Commonly referred to as “liquidation,” a Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a common form of bankruptcy that provides relief for those in unmanageable debt. Eligibility for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy requires determination that your monthly income is below Connecticut’s median income for a family of your size. Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows you to keep all of your exempt assets while discharging your unsecured debt including credit card debt, medical bills, personal loans and repossessions.
In the event that you’re ineligible to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, Chapter 13 may be your best bet. Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows Connecticut residents to repay debt through a court-approved payment plan, often lasting somewhere between three and five years. Chapter 13 may also allow you to catch up on your secure payments such as a mortgage or automobile loan that are in danger of foreclosure or repossession.
