Q. If a company owes you commission and they file Bankruptcy How do you collect or make a claim?
A: To claim sums due from a Debtor in Bankruptcy: (1) Download a Claim Form from the website of the Bankruptcy Court; (2) Fill in the request information and attach proof of your claim such as a Judgment, Lien, or Invoice; and (3) File the Claim and attachments with the Clerk of the Bankruptcy Court. If you have an Attorney they can file electronically on your behalf. If you file yourself, you must do so in person by presenting your Claim and attachments in triplicate at the Clerk's office. Finally, keep in mind that not all cases allow for the filing of claims. Your safest bet is to contact the Trustee's office to find out if claims are being accepted in the case in question. You may also contact our office if you would like assistance.
Q. How many years do I have to wait until I can file Bankruptcy again?
A: The 2004 amendments to the U.S. Bankruptcy Code - collectively, the BAPCPA - were designed to make it more difficult for consumers to seek relief in bankruptcy. One way the BAPCA achieved its goal was by extending the minimum required period between bankruptcy discharges. It used to be that you had to wait 7 years after receiving a bankruptcy discharge in order to file a new case. Now you must wait 8 years. Keep in mind that we are talking about 8 years in between the receipt of a discharge (i.e. a successful case) and the filing of a new case: not just the time between filings.
