    Exclamation What to Do if You Can't Find Creditors When Filing for Bankruptcy

    My question involves bankruptcy in the state of: California

    I'm going to file for bankruptcy but cant find any of my old creditors, I know now they're with collection agencies. I don't have any account numbers nor contact information. I've tried credit reports but no luck. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    The list of creditors is not intended as a trap for the bankrupt person -- it's intended to make sure, that to the maximum extent possible, creditors are notified. You and your lawyer will do your best based upon the information available to you. You can, of course, list the collection agencies -- and should do so.

    I believe that the ORIGINAL title of this thread had more information that the moderators gratuitously deleted. If the debts really are from TEN YEARS AGO (this was the information deleted), they're likely beyond SOL and no longer actual debts.
