Staying in business with Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

Chapter 11 bankruptcy is typically filed by businesses which have accumulated excessive debt. As an alternative to Chapter 7 bankruptcy, in which assets are liquidated, Chapter 11 gives petitioners time to propose a payment plan for money owed to creditors. With Chapter 11, your business can remain open while a bankruptcy court oversees the reorganization of debts and contractual obligations.

When you file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Phoenix, you become a debtor in possession, which means that you maintain ownership over bankruptcy assets while reorganizing your debt. You also maintain the right to use, sell, or lease property in your bankruptcy estate.

This means that we have the experience to assist you in reorganizing your debt to promote your bankruptcy fresh start.

Filing for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in Arizona

The court will then judge if the plan to repay creditors is likely to succeed.
