Q: If a company owes you commission and they file Bankruptcy How do you collect or make a claim?
A: Need more information. What type of bankruptcy, what is the commission for, how much is it for, etc.?
A: To claim sums due from a Debtor in Bankruptcy: (1) Download a Claim Form from the website of the Bankruptcy Court; (2) Fill in the request information and attach proof of your claim such as a Judgment, Lien, or Invoice; and (3) File the Claim and attachments with the Clerk of the Bankruptcy Court. If you have an Attorney they can file electronically on your behalf. If you file yourself, you must do so in person by presenting your Claim and attachments in triplicate at the Clerk's office. Finally, keep in mind that not all cases allow for the filing of claims. Your safest bet is to contact the Trustee's office to find out if claims are being accepted in the case in question. You may also contact our office if you would like assistance.
