The Chapter 11 Process
Individuals and businesses seeking relief from overwhelming debt may wish to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Chapter 11 is best suited for corporations, partnerships, and LLCs but individuals who have too much debt or too much income to qualify for Chapter 7 or 13 may also benefit from Chapter 11.
In most Chapter 11 bankruptcies, there is no trustee and debtors usually continue their normal business operations. A trustee will only be appointed if the bankruptcy court finds evidence of fraud, mismanagement, or incompetence.
Though the business will still be operable, the bankruptcy court must approve major business decisions such as:
- Sale of assets or real property
- Starting or breaking a lease
- Entering into or modifying contracts
- Mortgage arrangements
- Paying fees for attorneys and other professionals
By the end of the bankruptcy process, you will have reorganized your debts and come to an agreement with creditors about how you will continue paying debts in the future. Our Chapter 11 bankruptcy attorney in Palm Desert can walk you through the process.
