When a business in Louisiana or elsewhere realizes that significant partnerships it was banking on to succeed are not going to happen, it may be a sign that the time has come to close up shop. Financial issues are often at the root of such problems. Many business owners realize the value of wiping the slate clean by filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Some eventually re-open their doors once they have restored financial stability.
