What About Utility Services?

Public utilities, such as the electric company, cannot refuse or cut off service because you have filed for bankruptcy. However, the utility can require a deposit for future service and you do have to pay bills which arise after bankruptcy is filed. Generally, it is wise to pay utility bills current so that they do not have to be listed, at least as to utilities on a home or other dwelling which you intend to continue using after the bankruptcy.
