Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

Generally, chapter 11 bankruptcy is a reorganization of ones financial affairs, as to monthly payments, and as to the principal balance and rate of interest service on your debts. It can also stop foreclosures, tax levies, repossessions, IRS seizures, and other creditor actions and allows one to set up a court enforced repayment plan. Under court supervision, the debtor is allowed to propose a plan of reorganization and the creditors have limited negotiation rights to reach an agreement for the repaying of the debt.

Chapter 11 bankruptcy filings can be used as strategic move by a corporation.  In other words, management may decide to reorganize for reasons other than financial. It is available to individuals, corporations and partnerships and, unlike chapter 13, has no limits on the amount of debt involved. When a business may have too many debts to pay now but prospects for future growth are good, the use of chapter 11 bankruptcy may make sense.  A businesses is usually allowed to continue to operate while in chapter 11 bankruptcy, though they will be under the supervision of the bankruptcy court.

While in chapter 11 bankruptcy, creditors are not allowed to initiate or continue any lawsuits, garnish wages, or even make telephone payment demands. Secured creditors with liens on assets can petition the court to reposes those assets if court directed payments are not made.

Creditors may also file a motion to convert the bankruptcy to a chapter 7 liquidation or to dismiss the bankruptcy all together.  They can also force a business to file for chapter 11 or 7 if it cannot make the payments on its debt.  Large corporations normally make use of chapter 11 bankruptcy to allow them to continue to operate while the company's debts and finances are reorganized.

Often referred to as "reorganization" bankruptcy, chapter 11 is most often used by corporations, sole proprietorships and partnerships.  Attorney's fees can be expensive in chapter 11 bankruptcy and attorneys receive priority in payment over other creditors.  These fees can vary greatly from one law firm to the next.
