Considering Filing Chapter 11 Bankruptcy and Looking for the Right SOUTH FLORIDA LAWYER to Help You Decide What to Do and Potentially Help You File?

About Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

  • Used primarily for businesses (small or large); however, it is also used for individuals with large debts and assets too great for the strict limitations of a Chapter 13
  • As an alternative to a Chapter 7, which would require a business to liquidate, under a Chapter 11, your business is allowed to keep many of its assets
  • Does not eliminate your debt, but restructures your debt and monthly bills into a payment that you can manage, that way your business can keep its doors open and remain operating
  • Used if your income is too high and do not meet the requirements to file a Chapter 7
  • Used when your secured debt is beyond the limitations of a Chapter 13
  • Provides the benefit of an "automatic stay" as soon as it's filed which stops all collection activity throughout the bankruptcy process
  • Not required to complete the financial management course that is required for a discharge under both Chapter 7 and 13 bankruptcies
  • The most complex of all bankruptcies, therefore strong consideration should be made to hire an experienced bankruptcy firm

  • How do I know if I qualify for bankruptcy?

    Florida is the easiest state to qualify and file for bankruptcy because there are no minimum or maximum income requirements.

  • Do I need an attorney to file for bankruptcy?

    While you are entitled to file for bankruptcy without an attorney, the process is quite complex and errors may lead to delays or a denial of your petition.

  • Will my credit be destroyed if I file for bankruptcy?

    No. Once the overdue debt is discharged (Chapter 7) or renegotiated and paid down, your credit will start to improve almost immediately.

While many people opt to pay for fees at once or on a retainer basis, some prefer to utilize our $0 Down payment option. Here's how it works: After you sign an engagement for services agreement with our firm, generally speaking, the court filing fees and costs will be paid up front. These can be waived in certain circumstances. You do not pay anything initially for our bankruptcy legal fees. We work out a payment plan with you, where you are aware of the fees in advance for our services. You'll pay on a monthly basis over 12 months until our fee is paid. Some clients find this helps to allow them to meet all their obligations while the bankruptcy process proceeds. If you have further questions about our services or this option, please don't hesitate to contact our office.
