Which Form of Business Bankruptcy Is Right for You?

For the owners of family or small businesses, the “right type” of bankruptcy depends upon your unique circumstances. It is extremely important to understand the pros and cons of each business bankruptcy option before making a final decision. Our attorneys will carefully explain your options surrounding Chapter 7, Chapter 13 and Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code.

  1. Chapter 7 bankruptcy: Chapter 7 may be an option if you have no intention of retaining any portion of your business. In Chapter 7, a majority of your business debt is eliminated through liquidation of your assets.
  2. Chapter 13 bankruptcy: Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be a viable choice if your business debts are connected to your personal finances. In some instances, small-business owners have mortgaged their homes or other properties to finance business ventures. In these cases, it is often a good choice to file for Chapter 13 personal bankruptcy in an effort to save your home and other assets.
  3. Chapter 11 bankruptcy: Chapter 11 is known as business bankruptcy. It allows for a restructuring of your debt and enables you to reorganize your business in an attempt to remain functional.
