Bankruptcy and Your Utilities

If you are considering the process of bankruptcy, it’s likely that you are facing a series of expenses and debt. It’s likely that you’re worried about a potential repossession of your car as well as your home that is going into foreclosure. While it’s possible you could be worried about these events, one of the top things you might be worried about is paying for your utility bill. If you are struggling to pay your bills and you fear that your main utilities are going to be turned off, you should consider filing for bankruptcy today. If you’re filing for Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy and you haven’t officially filed the petition paperwork with the court’s, utility companies will be able to restore your service and stop any threat of termination on your utilities. An automatic stay provides you with the breathing room you need to organize your debts. If you’re struggling with utilities and you could use emergency assistance, you might also be able to access further help.
