Small Business and Bankruptcy

Are you a small business owner who is currently struggling to keep up with financial obligations? Are you being threatening with legal action or worried that you will be unable to maintain operations? If so, you may want to consider bankruptcy as a way to help eliminate your outstanding debt and get your business back on track. Many small business owners have gotten their businesses off the ground by using their own personal assets and property as collateral to secure loans or back their investment. In these types of cases, it is you as the small business owner who will be held personally liable for the debt your business incurs. Even if your small business is an LLC or corporation, there is still a possibility that you and your business partners could be held partially or entirely liable for certain debts. At the very least, your business assets could wind up being sold to get your debt paid off.
