CHAPTER 11 BANKRUPTCY PROTECTION

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Attorneys in Southfield MI, Helping Clients Rebuild Their Future

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy provides for reorganization, typically involving a partnership, corporation, or limited liability companies. A Chapter 11 debtor will propose a plan of reorganization in an effort to keep its business active and pay creditors over time. A Chapter 11 bankruptcy case is most often referred to as a “reorganization” bankruptcy. Chapter 11 relief is not only afforded to partnerships or corporations, it is also available to Individuals in business. Individuals can file under Chapter 11 if they have too much debt or income to qualify under Chapters 7 and 13.

Most often than not, Chapter 11 cases are voluntary. In this case, the debtor seeks bankruptcy relief. Debtors file for Chapter 11 protection where their primary place of business is located. It is common practice for individual debtors to file Chapter 7 or 13, when possible, to avoid the higher cost and risk involved in a Chapter 11 proceeding.

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Law Firm Specializing in Bankruptcy Protection in Michigan

The main benefit of a Chapter 11 proceeding is that the debtor can continue with business operations. Typically, no trustee is appointed. The debtor will continue and operate their business in the ordinary course, as the “debtor in possession.” However, keep in mind if the bankruptcy court finds enough cause, they can appoint a trustee to take over operations from the debtor. Cause can include dishonesty, fraud, and gross mismanagement of the debtor’s affairs.

In a Chapter 11 bankruptcy case, the court will have control over major decisions. Although the debtor continues in business after filing for bankruptcy protection, it will lose control over major decisions such as: sale of assets, breaking or entering into the lease of real or personal property, shutting down or expanding business operations, and more!
Furthermore, creditors and other parties in interest can support and/or oppose actions that require bankruptcy court approval. Most often, the bankruptcy court will consider input from creditors in making decisions on how to proceed. In regard to unsecured creditors, they usually participate in the bankruptcy proceeding, through a committee that is appointed to represent their interests. This committee can retain other professionals and lawyers to assist, often at the debtor’s expense. To start a Chapter 11 proceeding with the United States bankruptcy courts, a petition must be filed with the bankruptcy court serving the area where the debtor has residence. The petition may be involuntary (filed by creditors) or voluntary (which is filed by the debtor).

There are some considerations to keep in mind when filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. For example, an individual cannot file for Chapter 11 protection, if during the preceding 180 days, a prior bankruptcy case was dismissed because of the debtor’s failure to comply with orders of the court, or was voluntarily dismissed after creditors pursued relief from the bankruptcy court to recover property upon which they hold liens.
