If you pursue a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case, some specific advantages and disadvantages should be considered. As a Dallas bankruptcy attorney, I will take the time to review all of these options with you and explain how they pertain to you and your situation. In the interim, this list can provide some fundamental insight into the benefits and drawbacks of Chapter 7.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy can offer advantages:

  • All debt collection efforts against your company must immediately cease when the case is filed.
  • The bankruptcy trustee will liquidate all of the assets of your business. This process is typically very orderly and will not require the business owner to directly settle with creditors.
  • All dischargeable debt will be eliminated, which means that your company will no longer have any further obligation to pay that debt.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy does have a few disadvantages:

  • Your business must cease operations. At the end of the process, Chapter 7 bankruptcy will result in the end of your company.
  • You cannot directly sell the business after filing Chapter 7.
  • If you were to sell your company’s assets on your own, you might be able to get a better price than what the Chapter 7 bankruptcy trustee will likely get.


Even with these benefits and disadvantages in place, each case is unique and needs to be reviewed to see what the best option is for you and your business. Sometimes the best course of action is to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, but that is not always the case. No matter your situation, hiring an experienced attorney is the best way to protect your company’s future.
