East Hartford Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Lawyers

High interest credit card bills are the worst form of debt possible. They serve no useful purpose, and never seem to go down. While unsecured debt can build quickly, it is almost impossible to reduce. Credit card debt can quickly tap your income and result in much more significant problems paying rent, home payments, utilities, car expenses and food. If your credit card obligations become overwhelming, Chapter 7 bankruptcy can eliminate unsecured debt, protect your essential assets and preserve your rights to all your future income.

Full Relief Under the New Income Guidelines of Chapter 7

A properly filed Chapter 7 petition protects assets like homes and cars while eliminating unsecured debt. The first step in obtaining Chapter 7 relief under the new bankruptcy law is a careful analysis of household income from all available sources over the past six month period. This six-month income, doubled, is defined as "household annual income" for purposes of determining eligibility for "automatic" Chapter 7 relief. Annual income levels are categorized by family size and geographical area. In Connecticut, the numbers by family size are approximately:

  • Family of 1 - $60,000+ Family of 2 - $ 72,000+
  • Family of 3 - $87,000+ Family of 4 - $104,000+
  • All additional individuals - $7,500 per person
  • These numbers are subject to adjustment every six months
