What is a Chapter 11 Bankruptcy?

Fresno Bankruptcy Lawyers Helping to Reorganize Debt

Among the more common forms of bankruptcy, Chapter 11 is the most versatile. Virtually anyone can file, whether you're an individual, corporation, partnership, or LLC. Chapter 11 is built upon debt restructuring instead of debt elimination. For a small business, a Chapter 11 bankruptcy allows you to keep your operations running. For individuals, it allows you to retain assets.

Chapter 11 differs from Chapter 13 in these ways:

  • No income requirement
  • No debt limitations
  • No restrictions on who can file
  • No trustee requirement
  • No time limits on repayment plan

Though Chapter 11 offers more flexibility than Chapter 13, that versatility comes at a price. Generally speaking, a Chapter 11 bankruptcy is more complicated and expensive to file than a Chapter 13. Additionally, some debts that can be discharged in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy cannot be discharged in a Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
