Filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy gives small businesses and qualified individuals the opportunity to reorganize and reduce debt. As soon as you file for Chapter 11, creditors are prohibited from making any further collection efforts until the bankruptcy reorganization is complete. It gives you a chance to negotiate debt workouts with creditors, find ways to reduce costs, and stabilize your business so you can continue operations.
