 A weight has been lifted to say the very least. We are beyond words thankful for this office and its amazing staff! Contacting Attorney Neil’s office was the best decision we’ve made in a long time! For years we struggled, with each attempt to make things financially easier we only made it worse until it felt completely impossible to see a way out. Filing bankruptcy seemed terrifying – even making the initial call was terrifying but as most fears, it was all in my head. Attorney Neil was understanding to these fears which were reassuring – of course, I over-worried through the whole process even though he and Attorney Buckland assured me not to – and they were right. Everything went as smooth as they assured us it would and my only regret isn’t calling them sooner! A million thanks to Attorney Neil, Attorney Buckland, and their staff for dealing with my many questions and for giving us a second chance and, for the first time in a long time, hope for the future!

Chapter 7 is the most commonly filed Chapter of Bankruptcy protection in Bristol, CT.  Chapter 7 protects all your assets while fully eliminating all forms of general unsecured debt like credit cards, lawsuits, court judgments, older state, and federal income tax, along with foreclosure deficiencies and many forms of other high-interest consumer debt.  Trying to pay these costly unsecured debts often impacts and prevents other more important payments like household expenses and mortgages.  Chapter 7 debt relief clears never-ending wasted high-interest payments in favor of essential expenses like food, rent, home loans, and car loans.

All Chapter 7 filings protect your assets and don’t require any repayment to creditors.  All creditor claims discharged in your Chapter 7 bankruptcy are permanently eliminated forever and also off your credit reports permanently.  This allows you to have a full Chapter 7 fresh start and an immediate improvement in long-term high credit scores.

Chapter 13 is a more extensive form of bankruptcy protection that involves some form of repayment on high-priority debts.  Chapter 13 has additional protections beyond those afforded in Chapter 7.  Most importantly, the additional powers of Chapter 13 allow filers to fix all home mortgage problems and foreclosures at any stage of foreclosure in the Bristol/New Britain State Foreclosure Court.  While not all individuals or families may qualify for Chapter 7 relief, all individuals with any type of income are entitled to the “super provisions” of Chapter 13.  Chapter 13 involves the approval of a coordinated full Plan of Reorganization drafted by our expert Bristol bankruptcy lawyers.  The full Plan is completed in advance by our attorney with your help and approval.  This Chapter 13 Plan controls all past debt in your pre-bankruptcy life and allows you a fresh start going forward with no interference from creditors or the Court.  Similar to Chapter 7, all court attendance, all filings, all phone calls, and all creditors will deal strictly and directly with our attorneys while you continue forward in your regular life without threats for any old pre-petition debt.  Under Chapter 13, homes get paid, cars get paid, rent gets paid and past bills go behind or get eliminated.
