How Bankruptcy Law and the Bankruptcy System Work for You
The Bankruptcy System in Connecticut was created over 100 years ago to provide strong federal laws and protection for individuals, families, and small businesses in financial trouble. It’s run by the government and in accordance with a group of laws or “Chapters” created and run with rules and procedures to solve financial problems for hardworking East Hartford, CT residents. It gives our clients a federally mandated code of protection. It provides laws for any US citizen to protect assets from creditors and preserve the right to a financial fresh start. Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 provide two systems that combine to protect all residents of East Hartford, CT with relief from all types of debt and the full protection of your assets. These laws alter, reduce or fully eliminate what you owe and protect what you own. Bankruptcy laws work to grant Borrowers a full set of Federal rights and powers throughout the country. The Bankruptcy laws also created an entire Federal Bankruptcy System which operates daily to assure fair treatment and real fresh starts for all our East Hartford bankruptcy clients.
Bankruptcy laws under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 were written to stop all collection actions, preserve your belongings, and eliminate or reduce what you owe. It is an extremely powerful system built for the hardworking middle class. It’s created for you and banks hate it.
Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Protect Your Assets from Creditors
Contrary to popular myth, all bankruptcy law serves to protect assets. It keeps them fully protected under Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 through legally specific Exemption Laws.
Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Exemptions protect:
- Homes up to $250,000 in equity per person

- Tax refunds
- Social Security
- Life Insurance
- Personal Property
- 529 Accounts
- Custodial Accounts
- Household Goods
- Worker’s Comp Claims
- And others…
It is the only Court that fully protects these exempt assets with the Court-granted power to remove liens from your home or pay.
In addition to preserving your assets in the Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy system, bankruptcy law gives a federal protection for all your assets so they can’t be seized, levied, or liened by creditors ever again. This means that in the Bankruptcy System, old liens can be taken off exempt assets that would otherwise be threatened by these liens in any place other than the Bankruptcy Court. It is a special, federally granted power to remove an order of any other court and remove liens in order to protect your rights to all your exemptions.
