Understanding Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in Miami

What is Chapter 11 Bankruptcy?

Chapter 11 bankruptcy, also known as "reorganization bankruptcy," allows businesses to restructure their debts and operations while continuing to operate. This process enables companies to develop a feasible plan to repay creditors over time while maintaining control of their operations.

Eligibility for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

Chapter 11 bankruptcy is available to corporations, partnerships, and sole proprietorships. Unlike Chapter 7, there is no income requirement or means test for filing Chapter 11. Our attorneys will assess your business's financial condition to determine the most suitable bankruptcy option.

The Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Process

The Chapter 11 bankruptcy process involves several key steps:

  1. Filing the Petition: Submitting the necessary forms and documents to the bankruptcy court.
  2. Automatic Stay: An automatic stay halts all collection actions, allowing the business to operate without creditor interference.
  3. Appointment of a Trustee: In some cases, a trustee is appointed to oversee the reorganization.
  4. Developing a Reorganization Plan: Creating a plan to repay debts and restructure operations.
  5. Creditors’ Meeting and Plan Approval: Creditors review and vote on the proposed reorganization plan.
  6. Implementation of the Plan: Executing the approved plan to repay debts and restore financial stability.

Benefits of Filing for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

Debt Restructuring and Relief


Filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy allows businesses to restructure their debts, negotiate more favorable terms with creditors, and reduce overall debt burden. This process can provide significant relief and create a sustainable path forward.


Continued Business Operations


Chapter 11 bankruptcy enables businesses to continue their operations while reorganizing their financial affairs. This continuity helps preserve customer relationships, maintain revenue streams, and protect employee jobs.


Protection from Creditors


The automatic stay issued during Chapter 11 proceedings halts all collection actions, including lawsuits, foreclosures, and repossessions. This protection provides businesses with the necessary breathing room to develop a viable reorganization plan.


Improved Financial Management


Through the Chapter 11 process, businesses can implement improved financial management practices, streamline operations, and enhance profitability. This restructuring can lead to long-term financial health and stability.
