Bankruptcy will change your life. Many people incorrectly believe that, while bankruptcy will relieve their debt, it will also relieve them of all their property and their ability to get credit in the future. This is far from the truth. We encourage you to read our testimonials

About Your Credit
Rebuilding your credit after bankruptcy will be easier than you think. If you have missed credit card and mortgage payments, your credit likely is already severely damaged. Filing bankruptcy is the first step to fixing it. Most of our clients see their credit scores increase after filing, because most or all of their unsecured debts are eliminated and they cannot file again for some period of time. Additionally, getting a mortgage after bankruptcy or getting any other type of loan is definitely possible once you rebuild your credit score. The goal of bankruptcy is to provide you with a fresh start, not a step back.
You Will Not Be Left With Nothing
While there is the possibility that certain items of non-exempt property might be liquidated in order to pay off your debts, in most cases people give up no property. Connecticut and New York state exemptions and the alternative federal bankruptcy exemptions enable most people to retain most, if not all, of their property in bankruptcy. When you ask “What can I keep after bankruptcy?” we will educate you about what you will be able to keep. You will not have to start from scratch.
