The majority of Adelphia's revenue-generating assets were officially acquired by Time Warner Cable and Comcast on July 31, 2006.

As a result of this acquisition, Adelphia no longer exists as a cable provider.

Upon divesting its cable assets, Adelphia retained a skeleton crew of 275 employees to handle remaining bankruptcy issues.  It still exists as a corporate entity, continuing largely to settle ongoing financial obligations and litigation claims, as well as to consummate settlements with the SEC and the U. S. Attorney. It plans to sell most of its remaining real estate assets via a large Internet property auction. 
Adelphia's Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization has been marked by extensive disputes between creditors over the distribution of proceeds. The dispute mainly pits creditors of the parent company (Adelphia Communications Corporation) against the creditors of the various operating subsidiaries (primarily, Arahova, also known as Century Communications). This dispute is ongoing.
The effective date of the Adelphia Plan of Reorganization occurred on February 13, 2007. Time Warner Cable was allowed to distribute approximately $6 billion in shares to Adelphia stakeholders and succeed Adelphia as a publicly traded corporation.

The founders of Adelphia were charged with securities violations. Five officers were indicted and two (John Rigas and Timothy Rigas) were found guilty . John J Rigas (born November 14, 1924 in Wellsville New York) was one of the founders of Adelphia Communications Corporation, which at its peak Rigas founded Adelphia with a $300 license in 1952, took the company public in 1986 and built it by acquiring other systems in the 1990s. The company collapsed into bankruptcy in 2002 after it disclosed $2. 3 billion in off-balance-sheet debt.

Federal prosecutors proved that the Rigases used complicated cash-management systems to spread money around to various family-owned entities and as a cover for stealing $100 million for themselves. A second Rigas son, Michael, former executive vice president for operations, was acquitted of conspiracy and wire fraud in 2005. However, jurors were deadlocked on certain counts, and Michael Rigas is scheduled for a second trial. Former Adelphia assistant treasurer Michael Mulcahey was acquitted of all charges.
