Video: What happens to me personally if my corporation files bankruptcy?

If you own a company that needs to file a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 11 bankruptcy, there are certain things you need to be aware of as far as your personal liability.First, personal guarantees that you have with regard to corporate debts will not be excused simply because your company filed bankruptcy.
