Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
You should contact the bankruptcy court clerk. They can assist you with researching the company in the bankruptcy case system to obtain a docket report for their bankruptcy case filing. The docket report will contain their attorneys contact information as well as a plan explaining what they intend to do with their contracts, their assets and their debts, if the plan has been filed. Also, if the company was incorporated, then they should have registered agent contact information with your Secretary of State office.
Your contract will be in effect until such time as it is rejected by the company (the "debtor") in the bankruptcy case. Once you obtain contact information from the bankruptcy case, you can contact the attorneys and they can tell you the debtor's intentions regarding your particular contract.
