For Debtors

Welcome to the Debtors section of the Court's website.  Here you will find information concerning the bankruptcy process and business before the Court.  

A Debtor in Bankruptcy is ...

  • A person or organization that has borrowed money from another party and
  • Is unable to repay the money owed when it becomes due and has filed a Petition in Bankruptcy for relief.

Bankruptcy has long term financial and legal consequences and is a complicated process.  Hiring an attorney who is experienced and capable is strongly recommended. 

If you do not have an attorney, visit this page for information about free or reduced cost legal services as well as other helpful resources for proceeding without an attorney.

See also our Debtor without an Attorney page for additional resources.
