Manchester Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
One of the most common misconception about Chapter 7 is that filing a Chapter 7 will cause you to lose all your personal assets. Nothing could be further from the truth. The vast majority of all Chapter 7 cases are called "no assets" cases meaning that you lose no assets. Instead, all property is treated as "exempt" - untouched and "protected" from creditors. The purpose of Chapter 7 bankruptcy is to preserve what you own and eliminate what you owe.
To obtain the fullest relief available in Manchester, CT under Chapter 7, you need the most knowledgeable and experienced legal counsel available.
