What are Chapter 11 and 12 Bankruptcy ?

Posted on June 28, 2013. Filed under: Consumer Alerts, Consumer Bankruptcy Attorney | Tags: , , , , |

Chapter 11 is designed primarily for the reorganization of businesses but is also available to consumer debtors. Its provisions are quite complicated, and any decision for an individual to file a Chapter 11 petition should be reviewed with an attorney. Most Chapter 11 cases are simply too expensive for the great majority of consumer debtors. Most individuals are aware of the high profile Chapter 11 cases that have been filed in recent years by many businesses, including General Motors.

Chapter 12 is designed to permit family farmers to repay their debts over a period of time from future earnings and is in many ways similar to a Chapter 13. The eligibility requirements are restrictive, limiting its use to those whose income arises primarly from a family owned farm.
