If you are thinking of filing for bankruptcy, but are unsure if the current government shutdown will impact you, we have the answers you need. The quick answer is no, the United States Bankruptcy Courts are OPEN, at least, for now.
While bankruptcy proceedings will continue, 780 employees in the Justice Department’s U.S. Trustee Program have been furloughed. Only one third of the employees in the program will remain, cause a slow, steady backup. The U.S. Trustee Program is a watchdog agency that monitors bankruptcy proceedings around the nation.
