When a debtor files for bankruptcy - and the debtor’s estate is deemed to have assets - a creditor has the option of either filing a claim or simply forgetting about the debt and writing off the outstanding amount. What a creditor will decide to do will depend mainly on how much money there is in the estate and how much of a payment he or she will get. Filing a claim in a bankruptcy - be it a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13 case - can be a tricky process, and a creditor should thoroughly research the matter before completing any claim documentation. Creditors will usually receive notification of a bankruptcy from the Bankruptcy Court, and, immediately upon their receiving this notification, they should inspect their records to determine exactly how much the debtor owes them and also start collecting all relevant supporting documentation. They should also refresh themselves on the basic terms and conditions of their contract with the debtor that underlies their claim in order that they may determine whether their claim is secured, priority or unsecured. In complicated cases, it would, perhaps, be best if they consult with their attorneys regarding the aforementioned matters. A further possibility is that a debtor will file for bankruptcy and will not, for whatever reason, list one or more of his legitimate creditors on his bankruptcy schedules. In these cases, the forgotten creditors should consult with their attorneys as soon as they find out they’ve been left off the list so that they can request the debtor to amend his or her schedules and list the money owing to them. The Bankruptcy Court will also provide each creditor with a claim form, which has to be completed - correctly - and filed with the court by a certain date before any money can be paid out to them. Distributions are not, however, paid out as soon as a creditor has filed his or her claim, and, if there are indeed awards payable by an estate - this is not always the case - the payments will all be made simultaneously by the trustee just prior to the estate’s finalization.
