Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered

Q. i was just wondering if a company files for chapter 11 will they still pay you
A: It depends. The company will require that you file a Proof of Claim with the Court in the proper format. The company will then proffer to the Court and/or certain creditors a Plan of repayment or reorganization. You may be a priority creditor that they desire to pay; you may be an unsecured creditor that gets paid in full, or paid nothing. Every case is different. You need to consult with a Bankruptcy Attorney in your area to take a look at this specific case and represent your interests.
Q. When filing bankruptcy in VA, can I keep a house I am still paying mortgage on?
A: Yes. You can keep the home; however, depending upon the amount of equity, how you hold title and a number of other factors, you will need to determine whether Chapter 7 or 13 is right for you. If there is a fair amount of equity, Chapter 7 may not be a good option. If there is a lot of equity and you want to keep it, then you will need to file a Chapter 13 and repay your other debt over the next few years. Meet with a local Bankruptcy Attorney to determine what is right for you.
