For Creditors

You are a Creditor if: You are one to whom a debtor owes money or who claims to be owed money by the debtor.

Creditors are strongly encouraged to seek the advice of a licensed attorney. Corporations and partnerships are required to have an attorney. Individuals, commonly referred to as "pro se," may represent themselves. Pro se creditors must be familiar with and adhere to all bankruptcy rules and procedures.

The staff of the Clerk's Office are not permitted to assist with preparation of documents nor provide legal advice. Note: questions about how to proceed or what to do are considered requests for legal advice.

If you wish to retain an attorney, call the Wisconsin Bar Association Lawyer Referrals: 800-362-9082 (608-257-4666 Madison).
