Creditor Resources

A creditor in a bankruptcy case is a person or entity to whom the debtor owes money or who claims to be owed money by the debtor.

If you have received a notice from the court that lists you as a creditor in a particular bankruptcy case and the notice includes a proof of claim form, it means that the debtor has listed you in the debtor's bankruptcy case as someone who the debtor owes money.

  • Concerning a Short Sale of Real Property; There are 3 liens. The 3rd lien is a voluntary one for the purchase of a home water purification system. In order to sell the property short, the Bank requires that the 3rd lien agree to be released. The lien holder is unreasonable. They ask for the original $4400 + Back Payments, Interest and Penalties which make the release amount about $10,000. Nothing less is acceptable. The Bank may allow 1 or 2 thousand dollars, no more. Can the 3rd lien be eliminated by an administrative action or through bankruptcy?
  • Can I file without an attorney all I have is credit card debit. and where can I get the paperwork?
  • I am currently unemployed and found it very difficult to find work. I'm reaching the end of my rope with all my bills being extremely late and even though I haven't received a notice yet, I'm expecting a foreclosure notice.

  • I only have one car loan as far as debt. I only get child support as far as income ($300). I go to school full time. A year ago the house I was renting burnt down. It was an accident on my son's(17) part. I have received a bill for about $170,000 to repay the damages. Would Bankruptcy be an option? Can I file with only having this one bill? Would I lose my car since that is all I own now? Do I wait till the bill is older since I just got it?
  • I receive child support and am filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy due to disability. Do I claim child support as income?
