Think you cannot file for bankruptcy personally or for your business because of a court delay or closure due to COVID-19? Think again. The bankruptcy court in Trenton has been humming along smoothly throughout the pandemic without holdups or delays. The court is open. New cases can be filed at anytime electronically, as has always been the case. In addition, the court calendar is moving forward on schedule. Hearings are conducted via Zoom or telephonically. Due to social distancing mandates, you dial in from the comfort and safety of your own home.
Remember, bankruptcy is governed by federal law. In New Jersey, there are three Federal Districts Courts. For Monmouth County, Middlesex County, and Ocean County residents and businesses, our bankruptcy court is in the Trenton Vicenage. In the Trenton Vicenage of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey, I have a hard-earned excellent reputation with the judges, bankruptcy trustees, and my colleagues. I look forward to being assistance.
