Chapter 11 and Other Reorganizations

Chapter 11 bankruptcy is a form of reorganization. It is ideally suited for businesses — sole proprietor, partnership, LLCs and corporations seeking to reorganize their debts. Even individuals can file a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition. A husband and wife can file a joint petition under Chapter 11. Similar to Chapter 13, Chapter 12 has almost the same guidelines but with a higher debt ceiling and applies to farm operations. Only family fishermen and farmers qualify for filing a Chapter 12 bankruptcy.
