An individual may file under Chapter 11, but would only do so if they're secured debt exceeds the limits under Chapter 13.

Yes. In addition to Chapter 7 and Chapter 13, individuals are eligible to file a Chapter 11. Individual family farmers (rare in Los Angeles) are also eligible to file Chapter 12.

Chapter 11 would be your only other choice if you do not qualify for either Chapter 7 or 13.
