When filing for bankruptcy, individuals should include their utilities as part of their debt. By including the utilities, individuals can ensure that their utilities will not be shut off during their bankruptcy filings.
This provision also applies to Chapter 128 consolidations, which is a legal mechanism for helping to consolidate and pay off debt. Of course, most individuals are advised to consult with an attorney for how best to deal with their utilities during a bankruptcy filing or debt restructuring.
