If you miss one month’s utility bill – you probably will not hear from the company. However, if you miss months and have a pile of past-due statements, you’re waiting for a shut off notice.
To stop a shut off, you need a significant percentage or the entire bill’s balance. If you do not have the balance, you’ll find yourself without electricity or gas. You could have lost your job, had a death in the family – the utility company does not care.
Instead, file a bankruptcy. Filing a bankruptcy will stop a utility shut off. You can keep the lights on and we can work out a payment plan for attorney fees. Peter Francis Geraci and Geraci Law Attorneys are here to help. If you are worried about a pending shut-off, call us.
