Before filing for bankruptcy, consider the following concerns about Tallahassee bankruptcy claims:

    Is bankruptcy law exactly the same across America?

  • No. Federal bankruptcy law differs from state to state. That’s why it’s important to retain a lawyer who understands the nuances of this process.
  • Yes and no. Consider the two types of bankruptcy:

    • Chapter 7 – When this process is over, the business will disappear. The court oversees this type of bankruptcy, which allows a business to make sure their creditors receive any available remaining assets.
    • Chapter 11 – This is the “life raft” of bankruptcy, allowing an owner to try to rescue the business from certain failure. Future profits are pledged to creditors in order to pay off debts.
       
    • Chapter 13 - This is a debt reorganization for individuals whereby future income is pledged to the bankruptcy
