Filing Your Proof of Claim
If someone who owes you money files for bankruptcy, you will receive a notice from the court. This notice will inform you whether you will have the chance to recover any of the debt. If there is a chance to recover, you have to file a proof of claim with the bankruptcy court. This is your chance to provide statements, contracts and account ledgers to document the debt owed to you, including::
- Loan agreements
- Promissory notes
- Credit applications
As your attorneys, we will make sure you file all paperwork in a timely manner and give a complete and accurate statement of the money you are owed.
Texas Creditor Laws
Federal and state laws protect the rights of creditors. Whether you have financed a family buying a first home or you have invested in a new business, there are things you can do to get your money back. If you are afraid that a debtor is going to file for bankruptcy, we can help you take action to negotiate a payment plan or out-of-court settlement.
