Filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy allows you to keep certain property and reduce your debt through a court-approved payment plan that can clear a debt even if you only pay a small percentage of it. While some individuals choose to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy because of certain financial restrictions, the vast majority of Chapter 11 filers are businesses and corporations. Other petitioners who choose this form of bankruptcy include medical groups, professional associations, and non-profit organizations.
In a Chapter 11 bankruptcy, the court carefully monitors all debt payments. If you are thinking about filing for Chapter 11, you should work with a qualified bankruptcy attorney to develop a sound plan of action. The requirements and obligation of Chapter 11 can be daunting if faced alone. At Ortiz & Ortiz, LLP we have represented numerous businesses in Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings and helped them reorganize their debts without temporarily closing or losing their businesses entirely. Our firm’s Partner, Norma E. Ortiz, has over 25 years of experience in this area of law.
