Your bankruptcy case number will start out with the year your case was filed. So all cases filed in 2014 will start with the digits 14 and then a hyphen. For example, 14-12345. This is true for Nebraska and Iowa cases.
The following are three places you can find your case number:
- Any and all correspondence from the Court such as your bankruptcy hearing notice or any other correspondence from the Court.
- The letter our firm sent you after you filed your bankruptcy.
- Your file-stamped copies of your pleadings, such as yourVoluntary Petition. It is typed at the top of the pleadings. These were sent to you along with the letter our firm sent you after you filed.
You will need your bankruptcy case number in order to complete the required post-filing Debtor Financial Management Course. You will also want to have it available to give to creditors, if they contact you once you have filed, they will more than likely request it in order to verify the filing.
In the future you may need your case number when you are shopping for a vehicle or if you decide to apply for a loan. Of course, you can always contact our office for this information as well.
