Bankruptcy

Behar, Gutt, & Glazer, P.A. represents both debtors and creditors in the bankruptcy environment.

I. Debtors

Getting debt under control

The Federal Bankruptcy Code is designed to assist companies and individuals when their debt load becomes so unmanageable that the company or individual cannot find any other method of handling the debt.

The Bankruptcy Code is not simple

Different chapters of the Bankruptcy Code are designed to provide different types of bankruptcy protection. For example:

  • Chapter 11 allows for reorganization. It is available to any business, whether it is a corporation, partnership, or sole proprietorship. Although it is primarily used by corporate entities, it is also available to individuals.
  • Chapter 7 governs the process of a liquidation bankruptcy for businesses and individuals.
  • Chapter 13 provides for a reorganization process for individuals only.

Declaring bankruptcy or reorganization is a difficult decision

The decision to file for bankruptcy protection is often stressful and extremely difficult.  However, seeking bankruptcy protection can be an important financial tool.  The complexity of the bankruptcy law require sound advice and assistance in making the decision and navigating the bankruptcy process.
