Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
Hello I am a licensed attorney here to help you with your question, please review my response and do not hesitate to ask for clarification
In order for you to file an emergency bankruptcy the creditors would have to receive proper notice,
so you would need their address, at the least, and your account numbers,
addresses for most creditors can be found online,
if you do not have your exact account number, that is fine,
but the creditors would need to be mailed a notice from the court that you filed bankruptcy in order for the automatic stay to work
How about if I don't have any of the account number. Would that still be ok as long as I reported the balance and creditor?
Yes, but only for an emergency filing, as your name and social security number, the last four digits would appear to them,
and they would know what account it is for,
Is there a special form I file for emergency filing?
you would file a skeleton chapter 7 petition,
Required for the basic or emergency Chapter 7 filing:
You would then file it in your local bankruptcy court with the fee,
Each BKCY Court is different, so you will need to call your county clerk for the exact forms,
