For Creditors

Welcome to the Creditors section of the Court’s website. Here you will find information pertinent to you and your business with the Court.

You are a Creditor if you...

  • are a person or institution to whom a debtor owes money or claims that debtor owes you money.
  • have received a notice from the court about a bankruptcy case whereby the debtor has listed you as someone to whom debtor owes money or may owe money.

Bankruptcy is a complicated process with long term financial and legal consequences. While creditors or other interested parties before this court, do not have to be represented by a lawyer, hiring a competent lawyer is strongly recommended. Note: A corporation must be represented by a lawyer, except in certain limited instances (see Local Rule 9010-1(B) – Notice of Appearance).

If you cannot hire a lawyer, please visit our Don’t Have a Lawyer page for more information to guide you through the process.
