Filing an Emergency Bankruptcy Case

If you do not have the time to complete all required schedules and statements, you may file a skeletal petition consisting of the first 3 pages of the petition, the list of creditors names and addresses (creditor list), and filing fee, partial filing fee, or Application to Proceed In Forma Pauperis (Chapter 7 cases only)  - see Filing Fee Payment Options. Either a 7-day notice or a 14-day notice will be issued for the missing items. Click here for detailed instructions for filing a bankruptcy case on an emergency basis.
