I needed to use $3100 dollars for personal reasons while in chapter 11 and did not get authorization

Customer:

hello

Attorney2020 :

Under a Chapter 11 business bankruptcy, you can take a reasonable salary and use it for personal expenses. Howev\er, you cannot skim off the top and use money that was intended for creditors for personal reasons such as vacations etc.. If the trustee catches wind of this activity may cause a inquiry into bankrupcty fraud.

Yes I am aware of this, and since i am doing MOR it will show up. I took it upon myself to visit some customers and quietly explain our current chapter 11 situation face to face.

Attorney2020 :

Then you should be fine. 3100 dollars is not an unreasonable amount to take as a salary/compensation. I would not think too hard about this issue.
