Filing a Proof Of Claim
A Proof of Claim is a written statement and any verifying documentation that is filed by the creditor. The claim describes the reason the debtor owes the creditor money. Use the Official Form below to file your claim with the court. The proof of claim and its attachments should NOT contain any private information (social security numbers, bank account numbers, etc.). Bankruptcy records are PUBLIC and available to anyone.
