The company went into problem due to the current recession and also due to INS and government restriction of employing H1 visa holders . The company employees only H1 visa holders and as a result of this economic downtrend scaled down the operation and manage to layoff all the employees .

If you are unable to pay your debts, you have two options--either full liquidation under Chapter 7, or Chapter 11 "reorganization". In your case, if you do not expect the economy to improve or you do not see more clients/projects on the horizon, you very well may have to file Chapter 7. Since you have debts, those must be somehow dealt with before you can officially wind down the business, which means bankruptcy (if you are unable to pay the debts) is the only solution.

I wish I could give you a different answer, but that is all I can see for you from the facts provided.
