Bankruptcy Emergency Filing 

Depending on your situation, an emergency filing might be necessary. An emergency filing will immediately stop all collection efforts including: foreclosures, garnishments, lawsuits, and all other efforts to collect debts by your creditors. Because it is an emergency, the bankruptcy can be filed with as little information as your personal info and a list identifying those creditors that you wish to stop. You will then have 14 days to complete the filing, and include the rest of the information in your bankruptcy.

We have worked with many people who have needed an emergency bankruptcy filing. Each situation is very unique, and requires a very experienced team to know the best way to handle the situation. If you feel like this applies to you, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Time is very valuable in these situations, and the longer you wait the more your assets will be at risk. The best way to get help is to pick up the phone and call us at 801-544-5306.

Your bankruptcy will be filed immediately upon hiring us to represent you in your bankruptcy. We have immediate electronic access with the federal bankruptcy court, which allows us stop all collection efforts against you immediately.

What information do you need for an emergency filing?

A bankruptcy may be initiated with as little information as your personal information, and the information of your creditors. This initial information will stop all attempts to collect debt against you. However, your bankruptcy will not be complete until a full list of your debts, creditors, and other information is file. After initiating your emergency filing, you will have 14-days to file the rest of the information. Don’t worry, we will help walk you through the process.
