Requirements of an Emergency Bankruptcy Petition in IL
Filing for bankruptcy can ordinarily be a lengthy process, as it requires
you to list your assets, debts, income, expenses, and other relevant information
about your financial history in accurate detail. If you do not have time
to fill out the necessary paperwork due to an impending foreclosure, car
repossession, eviction, or wage garnishment, you may file what is known
as a “skeleton petition.”
A skeleton petition requires you to only fill out the minimum documents,
- Form 1 (Voluntary Petition)
- The Mailing Matrix
- Form 21 (Statement of Social Security Number)
Immediately upon filing, an attorney from our firm can notify your creditors
of your filing to stop any impending collection actions against you. If
you are filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you may also be required to
file a pay order that estimates your plan payments to your bankruptcy
trustee. Depending on the specific court in which you file, you may also
be required to provide written disclosure statements or electronic copies
of your documents. Once these forms are filed, you will need to complete
the rest of the forms within 14 days, including a complete list of creditors
whom you owe money. Failure to complete the remaining necessary paperwork
may result in your petition being dismissed, making it extremely important
you strictly adhere to this timeline.

Filing an emergency petition is much more complex than a traditional bankruptcy
filing and can expose you to numerous opportunities for error –

and can ensure your petition is filed completely and correctly, allowing
