Credit card debt may spiral out of control because an unexpected event like job loss or injury pushes you into relying on credit for day-to-day expenses, because your income declines and you’re no longer able to pay off those balances as you once did, or simply because you’ve made tactical errors. Regardless of the reason, unmanageable credit card debt can be disheartening, reaching into every area of your life.

Debt collectors would like you to believe that if you’re behind on your bills, you’re at their mercy. Fortunately, that’s just not true. In Connecticut, consumers are protected by the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and two state laws: the Creditors Collection Practices Act (CCPA) and the Consumer Collection Agencies law (CCA). If creditor or collection agencies are calling you, threatening you, misrepresenting your obligations or otherwise harrasing you, learn more about your rights today.Read more →
Chapter 7 bankruptcy law was written to give people who have unmanageable levels of unsecured debt get a fresh financial start so they can build better lives. Across the United States, more than half a million individuals and couples filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection last year. In a Chapter 7 case, many Connecticut residents are able to eliminate unsecured debt altogether. That can mean no more credit card debt, no more medical bills, no past-due utilities, no unsecured loans…just a brand new beginning. To find out whether you qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, schedule a free consultation today. You may even be able to file bankruptcy online.Read more →
Chapter 7 bankruptcy isn’t right for everyone. Generally, Connecticut residents choose Chapter 13 bankruptcy if they’re having trouble with secured debt such as automobile loans and home mortgages, or if they have non-exempt property that they want to keep. In such cases, many people are able to establish Chapter 13 repayment plans, which stretch out past-due balances over three to five years while putting a halt to collection action. If this sounds like it could be the right answer for you, schedule your online consultation today—it’s free.Read more →
In most cases, an automatic stay takes effect as soon as a bankruptcy case is filed. The stay prevents most collection actions, including foreclosure proceedings. In a Chapter 13 case, it may be possible to catch up past-due payments over three to five years while making current mortgage payments. In this way, Chapter 13 bankruptcy may stop foreclosure and save your home. If you’re facing foreclosure and would like to learn more about whether Chapter 13 bankruptcy might be the solution for you, schedule a free consultation today.Read more →
Medical debt is a growing problem in the United States. About half of uncollected debt in the U.S. is medical, and 43 million Americans have past-due medical bills on their credit reports. It’s no surprise, then, that nearly half of personal bankruptcy cases are filed at least in part due to medical debt. If you’re one of the many Connecticut residents struggling with medical bills, you may want to learn more about Chapter 7 bankruptcy. In many cases, medical debt can be discharged entirely in a Chapter 7 case, freeing you from the obligation to pay and stopping further collection activity.Read more →
In Connecticut, up to 25% of your disposable income may be subject to wage garnishment withholding, so long as you still take home at least 40 times the minimum wage. If you’ve been threatened with wage garnishment or your wages are already being garnished and you just can’t afford that kind of drop in your income, don’t give up just yet. Schedule a free consultation to learn more about how bankruptcy can instantly stop wage garnishment.Read more →
