What is Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

Filing for bankruptcy can be overwhelming and complex. It is important to understand what Chapter 11 bankruptcy is and how exactly it can help you. In simple terms, declaring Chapter 11 bankruptcy allows you to file for bankruptcy and then create a plan to pay off your debts on a reasonable timetable. It does not discharge all of your unsecured debt.

For example, if you are a business owner who has vendors, creditors, or collection agencies harassing you on a daily basis for payments, declaring Chapter 11 bankruptcy allows you to stay in business while suspending the constant contact from collectors. However, you will have to pay your creditors back the balance owed based on a mutually agreed-upon repayment schedule.

Who Is Chapter 11 Bankruptcy For?

Most commonly, declaring Chapter 11 bankruptcy is an option for businesses who can no longer afford to pay their creditors on a regular basis. A business can voluntarily declare bankruptcy with the goal of creating a plan to stay in operation while repaying their debts over time. However, a business can involuntarily enter bankruptcy if its creditors decide to take action on the outstanding debts that are owed. If you are a business owner who has a significant amount of outstanding debt, you need to be prepared for this type of scenario.

Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection can also be utilized by individuals and couples who have amassed a considerable amount of debt that they can no longer afford to pay off. As an individual or couple, this is not a process you want to enter into alone. Since you are already in a compromised financial state, it is key to find a reasonable bankruptcy attorney who knows the ins and outs of the system. The bankruptcy law firm of Ivey McClellan can provide the bankruptcy help you need to fight for a settlement that will stop creditor harassment while creating a plan to become debt-free in the coming years.

Finding A Good and Affordable Bankruptcy Attorney

Finding A Good and Affordable Bankruptcy Attorney
There are many different law firms that can offer help for all types of bankruptcies. A simple search engine query will turn up dozens of results. Finding an honest, hard-working bankruptcy attorney who has years of negotiating and settlement experience, and considers your best interest as priority number one is a lot tougher.

You can trust us when we tell you that you do not want just any lawyer when it comes to declaring bankruptcy. You need an experienced bankruptcy attorney who understands the bankruptcy laws of your state and will get you the best deal possible when it comes to creating a payment plan.

It is important to find a bankruptcy lawyer that understands your situation and will work diligently on your behalf. When a business or individual is declaring bankruptcy, they may be in a state of desperation. Some bankruptcy attorney firms might see this as an opportunity to overcharge a client. You may get the immediate help you need... but you will end up in even more debt due to the exorbitant legal fees.

When it comes to representing yourself in a  bankruptcy court, you risk leaving yourself open to several detrimental outcomes such as:

  • Wage Garnishment
  • Bankruptcy Fraud
  • Personal Property Seizures
  • Personal Liability Issues
  • Unnecessary Penalties
