reditors have rights in bankruptcy proceedings

They may participate in a meeting with the bankrupt debtor to ask questions on the reasons leading to bankruptcy and the classification of certain debt, object to plans of reorganization, and even to request the automatic stay to be lifted if the debtor fails to comply with obligations created by the Bankruptcy Code.

If you are a creditor, and receive a notice of bankruptcy filing, you should consult with an experienced bankruptcy attorney right away. You may have rights to prosecute debt within bankruptcy, and the exercise of such rights are a time-sensitive matter. The earlier you communicate with an attorney, the better.
