Consult a certified bankruptcy specialist to discuss which type of bankruptcy is right for you.  An experienced bankruptcy specialist can discuss with you the specific circumstances for your case  and if a chapter 11 case is right for you.  In chapter  11,  the debtor acts generally as the debtor in possession.  This is a special relationship that the debtor has to the creditors to properly account and act during the chapter 11 case.  The attorney for the debtor in possession spends a great deal of time to meet the requirements of a debtor in possession for the client.  The attorney must file an application to be employed with the court and obtain the court order approving the employment to be paid by the debtor. Seek consultation and advice from a certified bankruptcy specialist to discuss the different types of bankruptcy (chapters 7, 11, and 13) and which one is right for you.
