Debtor Resources

The person filing the case is called the “Debtor.” The Debtor Help section of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court website contains basic information a debtor may need to know during the bankruptcy process. The Debtor Help information is organized into these categories: “Before You File,” “When You File,” “After You File,” and “Frequently Asked Questions” (FAQs).

Debtor resources are available through the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, District of Arizona website.
