Sometimes clients come to us when things are so bad, or when a debt issue is so pressing, like a pending foreclosure, and the client needs to file a bankruptcy petition as soon as possible. While a typical Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing in Utah will require around 50 pages of documents with the court, the law allows emergency bankruptcy filings in Utah amounting to only the first 2 pages of the petition along with the certificate of the credit counseling course. Why is the helpful? Because in many cases and for many reasons you may need to file immediately and it would be impossible to assemble all of the necessary documentation in just a matter of hours. Most importantly, the automatic stay comes into effect at the time of filing. This means a foreclosure or repossession or other type of creditor action can be halted immediately, buying you some time to further proceed with bankruptcy or otherwise.
