  • A company or individual has filed for bankruptcy and owes us money. What do we do? Alaska

    If you have been listed as a creditor in a bankruptcy case, you will receive a written notice in the mail from the Clerk's Office advising you that the case has been filed. This notice will also tell you whether or not you should file a claim in the bankruptcy case at that time, and the deadline for filing the claim if one is to be filed. The notice will also give you important deadlines for filing complaints to object to a debtor's discharge or dischargeability of certain debts.
    In most Chapter 7 cases, the first notice you receive from the Clerk's Office will tell you not to file a claim. If the case trustee later finds that the chapter 7 case has assets, he will have the Clerk's Office send out a supplemental notice that sets a deadline for creditors to file claims, along with a proof of claim form. If you receive a notice that sets a deadline for filing claims, you should file a proof of claim with the Clerk's Office. The claim must be received by the Clerk's Office on or before the deadline indicated on the notice. If you are mailing your claim to the Clerk's Office, make sure you mail it well before the deadline so the Clerk's Office will receive it by the due date.

    In Chapter 11, 12 and 13 cases, the first notice you receive from the Clerk's Office will contain a deadline for filing claims and will include a proof of claim form. If you want to share in the debtor's plan, you must file a proof of claim with the Clerk's Office by the deadline indicated on the notice. Your claim must be received by the Clerk's Office filed by the deadline (not mailed by that date).

    If someone who owes you money has filed bankruptcy, but you have not received a written notice about the bankruptcy, you can submit to the Clerk's Office a written "Request to be Added to the Mailing Matrix." Include your mailing address in this request so that the Clerk's Office can add you to the matrix and send you future notices about the debtor's bankruptcy.
