SMALL BUSINESSES AND CHAPTER 13 BANKRUPTCY
Running a small business can often feel like walking a tightrope. One misstep can send you careening toward the ground. Luckily, there’s a safety net — Chapter 13 bankruptcy. You don’t necessarily have to sacrifice your business and your livelihood just to pay off a stack of old debts. If you’re afraid that economic hardship and debt will make you lose your small business, bankruptcy may be a wise option for you.

CHAPTER 13: SAVING YOUR SMALL BUSINESS WITH BANKRUPTCY
Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows those who file to consolidate all of their debts into one affordable monthly payment. The bankrupt individual makes these payments for the next three to five years, after which time any debt that remains unpaid may be discharged. Because you don’t have to surrender any assets or property to creditors (with a few possible exceptions), Chapter 13 bankruptcy is ideal for small-business owners.
Most importantly, you do not have to give up any property that is essential to running your business. We have represented owners of auto body and mechanic shops, day care centers, convenience stores and other businesses. We have even represented real estate agents and agencies that were unable to sell properties in the real estate market following the subprime foreclosure crisis. We were able to help them save many houses that would have otherwise been lost to foreclosure.
