Utility service bill delinquencies, Utility shutoffs and Bankruptcy

If you're behind on your utility service payments, bankruptcy offers help. Particularly, if you're facing a shutoff notice, or you've actually had your utility service shutoff.

Section 366 of the bankruptcy code provides the debtor with the means of assisting them with their financial distress pertaining to their utility service.

That code section is very specific, in that it states what a utility company can and cannot do, as well as it directs the Debtor to make a security deposit to the utility company within 20 days of the filing of their bankruptcy case, for adequate assurance of future payments on those utility services.

The purpose of this article is not to offer legal advise, but to point out to the reader a general understanding that bankruptcy laws can help a debtor facing a financial distress with their utility service. As I always point out, bankruptcy laws a very complex, and are best pursued by a debtor hiring an attorney who specializes in bankruptcy law.
