Scam artists are prowling as the WE Energies Shutoff Moratorium is set to expire, says JS Online. Be careful, and read the article here:
Wisconsin residents: As you may know, the winter energy shut off moratorium will soon be coming to an end. As of April 16th, WE Energies will again be permitted to shut off customers who have a past due bill and have not made acceptable arrangements with them to pay it. Remember, BOTH Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy will stop a shut off, but a Chapter 128 will not. Too many people wait until the last minute and then find they cannot afford WE's payment arrangements OR a bankruptcy in time to avoid the consequences. Knowing this, we urge you to call us TODAY for your free consultation, so that you have time to plan your next move before you get the letter/call from WE. We are here to help you! Call us today. https://www.millermillerlaw.com/
We have had a recent surge of calls lately regarding whether Chapter 128 filings will stop WE Energies shutoffs. Unfortunately while that used to be the case, in Milwaukee you are no longer able to use a Chapter 128 to prevent a shutoff or to get reconnected once WE has discontinued your service for nonpayment. As you may know, a Chapter 128 is a Voluntary Amortization of Debt plan where unsecured debts can be placed in a repayment plan and paid back to creditors on a pro-rata basis for as long as 36 months. This can be useful for one or two problematic debts in certain situations. But if you live in Milwaukee and are facing a shutoff by WE Energies, please contact us immediately to discuss other solutions. Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be available and often are a better alternative to a Chapter 128. A Chapter 13 lets you pay back based on your income rather than what you owe WE, and this can be very helpful. Even if you think you are not eligible because you previously filed a bankruptcy, don't be so sure. Give us a call to set up a free consultation and let's get your power back on!
