Yes. You need to file a claim against the customer with the bankruptcy court where they filed for protection. The clerk of the court can provide you with the forms you need.

 

Depending on all of the circumstances, you should receive at least partial payment for the goods you provided.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
