Bankruptcy Services

“What types of debts can be discharged in bankruptcy?” This is one of the most common questions asked by people we discuss debt relief with every day. And it’s a very good question! Unsecured debt can be discharged in Chapter 7 bankruptcy or modified under Chapter 13. Secured debt cannot be completely eliminated, but it can often be modified or reduced, depending on the type and value of the secured assets. Tax debts can be eliminated or modified. The proper use of bankruptcy to discharge your unsecured debt allows you and your family the disposable income necessary to repay more important debt obligations, such as your mortgage, rent and car payment. It also allows you to reallocate limited financial resources to rebuild your financial future with the stability necessary for long-term financial security.


Financially speaking, almost nothing can have a greater impact on a family than losing a home to foreclosure.

Credit Card Debt Relief

High interest credit card debt is the number one cause of financial problems in Connecticut. It robs families of needed disposable income every month, and even after paying each month, it never seems to go away. Consumers who feel as though they are spinning their wheels without a real plan to get out from under their credit card balance should understand that options are available. Legal solutions are there to protect you. In every case, credit card debt can be reduced or eliminated. Unsecured credit card debt is the easiest form of consumer debt to reduce or compromise through settlement or elimination. But, it often takes the help of an experienced professional. In some cases, credit scores are barely affected. In all cases, debt reduction will, in the long run, lead to a higher credit score and a solid financial foundation.

Small Business Bankruptcy

The backbone of Connecticut’s economy is the small business just like yours. Unfortunately, with the proliferation of easy access to consumer debt, many small businesses fail as a result of increased debt burdens that negatively affect the profitability of the business and the personal debt load of small business owners. With the lack of solid business lending, high interest consumer debt and commercial pay-day loans have become common practice throughout the small business community. The results prevent small businesses from growing revenue to get out of debt but the solutions are part of your legal rights and our customized strategies for small business debt relief.

Tax Debt Resolution

Taxes are a yearly struggle for every individual and business. It can be difficult to make a payment to the IRS or the Connecticut Department of Revenue Service (DRS) when you are having a hard time paying your other bills. If you have fallen behind on your taxes, it is important that you act quickly. Tax authorities can foreclose on your home, seize your property or place a lien on your property. In extreme cases, where the tax authorities allege that you are withholding taxes willfully or fraudulently, you may also face criminal charges and jail time. There are solutions available to you. With experienced legal assistance, numerous options exist for you to put a stop to collection efforts by the IRS or DRS. Any bankruptcy filing creates an automatic federal stay on any collection action or legal actions of any local, state or federal tax authorities.
