Short answer: a form that a creditor fills out and files with the court in a bankruptcy case.
If you are a creditor in a bankruptcy case it is your responsibility to file a proof of claim if you want any chance of recovering any money. The Utah Bankruptcy Court requires that you fill out a form called a “proof of claim”. This document helps the court keep track of creditors and it allows for the trustee to make payments to creditors if there are any assets recovered.
If you are a creditor in a bankruptcy case it is worth the short amount of time that it takes to fill out and file a proof of claim form. It’s pretty easy.
