Bankruptcy

Harris & Davis, P.C. represents debtors in Chapter 7, Chapter 11, Chapter 12, and Chapter 13 bankruptcy proceedings in United States Bankruptcy Court for the Middle and Northern Districts of Georgia..  We possess a thorough understanding of the laws that govern bankruptcy in the United States, and are committed to developing and implementing effective plans on behalf of our clients.

  • Chapter 7 – Chapter 7 bankruptcy, also called liquidation, is generally appropriate for individuals and businesses facing significant debt, with no way to repay the debt.
  • Chapter 11 – Businesses that need an opportunity to reorganize their finances may file Chapter 11 bankruptcy, which allows businesses to implement a plan to reorganize the business.
  • Chapter 12 – Chapter 12 bankruptcy specifically meets the needs of financially distressed family farmers, giving farmers the chance to reorganize their debts and keep their farms.
  • Chapter 13 – Under Chapter 13, individuals with regular income may keep their property and repay debts over a period of three to five years.  Chapter 13 bankruptcy ends the foreclosure process and allows debtors to keep their homes in most cases.

Bankruptcy may be a viable option if you are confronted with mounting debt, harassment from creditors, foreclosure, repossession, and orders from the IRS to pay back taxes.

Business Reorganization

As part of Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings, you may be required to reorganize your business, or you may choose to reorganize your business by an out-of-court workout.  In either case, we can help you refocus your business, defend against collection activity and restructure your debt without court intervention.

Creditors’ Rights

When representing creditors, we enforce and protect creditors’ rights.  We have extensive experience representing companies in consumer and business bankruptcy cases.  If a debtor files bankruptcy, we can help you file the necessary documents, such as the proof of claim, obtain relief from the automatic stay, file complaints objecting to discharge or to except a debt from discharge, object to plans and negotiate settlements with the debtor.

Tax Delinquency

We handle tax delinquency cases by negotiation with the Internal Revenue Service and resolving the tax problem under the most applicable chapter of the Bankruptcy Code.  With our experience representing individuals and businesses that have been unable to pay their taxes, we can help you reestablish good standing with the IRS or discharge tax liability.
