COVID-19 has impacted nearly every aspect of our lives, which is why we feel it prudent to write a blog regarding the impact of COVID-19 on your bankruptcy case. Below, we have compiled a list of the many ways in which your case may be impacted by the virus. Please continue reading and speak with our experienced New York bankruptcy attorney today to learn more:

  • Generally speaking, bankruptcy courts are still open in some places, however, these hearings are now conducted primarily over the phone or video as opposed to in-person, so if you are someone who has recently filed, you can expect that your case will be a phone or video case. Our experienced Rockland County bankruptcy attorney would be pleased to inform you of any further details. That being said, if you have not yet filed, you may still do so as of now.
  • If you have been scheduled to attend a meeting of creditors, please contact our firm to learn more about when your meeting has been rescheduled to in the wake of the new coronavirus. That being said, confirmation hearings for Chapter 13 filers will not be postponed as of now, and will instead be conducted via phone appointment. If your meeting has been postponed, the discharging of your debt may also be postponed.
  • Despite all the recent confusion, you should note, however, that you are still required to make your mortgage payments on time.

If you have any additional questions regarding how the virus may be impacting your case, simply speak with our knowledgeable, compassionate, and trustworthy Rockland County bankruptcy attorney today to learn more about how our firm can help you through these turbulent times.
