Many people are surprised to learn that Chapter 11 bankruptcy is available to individuals. It is most commonly known as the method used by large companies whose filings make newspaper headlines. But any individual or business may file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. In Florida, Miller, Hollander & Jeda has more than 35 years of experience handling every type of bankruptcy issue. We are highly capable of reviewing your financial concerns and guiding you to the type of bankruptcy filing that is best suited to your needs.
Why file for individual Chapter 11 bankruptcy?
Filing for individual Chapter 11 bankruptcy is unusual. It has many similarities to Chapter 13 bankruptcy, but may become the better choice for an individual when their debt exceeds the limits of Chapter 13. In addition, individual Chapter 11 bankruptcy allows you to retain a larger degree of control than would be possible under Chapter 13.
Miller, Hollander & Jeda has filed more consumer bankruptcies in Southwest Florida than any other firm. Chapter 11 bankruptcy is complex, and may incur significant cost. We have the knowledge and experience to help you determine if it may be your best option. If so, we assist you in:
- Drafting and approving a disclosure statement that describes how you will reorganize and pay your debts
- Proposing a plan of reorganization to your creditors and getting it confirmed
- Carrying out a confirmed plan or reorganization
- Finalizing the discharge of your debts
If you own a business, filing for individual Chapter 11 bankruptcy, or Chapter 11 for businesses, allows you to keep it functioning through reorganization. Chapter 7 business bankruptcy is an option, but it results in liquidation of non-exempt assets.
Chapter 11 is the most flexible bankruptcy option available, but it does carry risks. We invite you to meet with us for a free consultation to discuss your goals and concerns.
