Start Over with Your Utility Bills
If you have been notified of a pending utility shutoff in addition to other financial problems you face, contact our firm for immediate protection. A shutoff threat does not mean that your utility company will cut you off from vital electricity or gas. You can protect yourself through a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing.
For the legal help you and your family need from a possible utility shutoff, contact an attorney at our Mount Laurel office at 856.235.4994.
A Threatened Utility Shutoff = A Stressful Situation
Financial struggles often lead to our clients having to prioritize their bills. They may want to continue paying their mortgage or high-interest credit card payments, and in turn may have to put off other expenses. Oftentimes, utility bills go to the bottom of the pile and unfortunately remain unpaid. Calls from the utility companies threatening shutoffs create even more fear and anxiety when you lack the funds to satisfy their demands.
A Bankruptcy Filing Will Stop a Utility Shutoff
At the New Jersey-based Taieb Law, we want you to know that you have options if your utility company is threatening to cut off your electricity or gas. A Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy provides an equal amount of protection from those creditors. The filing will stop disconnection efforts. In addition, you may be able to discharge a portion of the past-due debt, if not all of it, but you will be required to provide a deposit as adequate assurance.
