Filing Bankruptcy To Stop Utility Shut Off

Having financial problems can often result in utility companies shutting off service. This becomes very difficult to manage especially in the cold winter months. Utility companies can be difficult to deal with which leaves you stuck without service. Fortunately, filing a Bankruptcy case will immediately reinstate your utility service. After a Bankruptcy is filed, utility companies such as DTE Energy will set up a new account with payment of a small security deposit. The entire balance owed on the old account will be included in the bankruptcy case. If you are at risk of having utility service shut-off, or if your utility service has already been shut-off, please contact Bishop Law Offices for a free consultation.
