Are the bankruptcy courts open? Can I still file for bankruptcy? The answer is YES you can. Currently, residents of Maryland can still file for bankruptcy protection despite Covid 19. Visits to our office are not required, although you are welcome to schedule a meeting at the office if you wear a face mask and observe social distancing, and keep meetings brief.
If you prefer sending your documents electronically, all documents may be sent by email, mail or fax and we conduct meetings with Zoom or other virtual technology.
The bankruptcy courts in Maryland are currently conducting all official Court hearings by Zoom or telephonic conference as of March 2020 until further notice. Therefore, you can get your bankruptcy case filed and attend your bankruptcy court hearings without ever leaving your home. Our office will keep you updated if the virtual court hearings are discontinued.
