Having an impending bankruptcy hearing is a significant event in the life of any individual as it has the power to affect their economic and financial viability short term or in the long run. Attending such a hearing where such important decisions are being made about your current and future economic status is of great significance, not just in the sense that your presence is required for the hearing and because you may be asked some important questions concerning your situation. Specific situations may render you unable to attend the hearing due to reasons such as a personal injury, a health complication or medical emergency, all of which may contribute to the plaintiff’s inability to appear for the hearing.
In situations of unavoidable absences, the standard procedure is to file an ex-parte motion that will allow for the individual in question to participate in the hearing via phone conference. While this might seem like an ideal opportunity, this presents a unique issue of verification of required credentials to confirm the identity of the caller such as social security card, driver’s license or any other such documents necessary to validate identity. This is where the services of a notary are needed. In situations of this nature, a notary will physically verify his/her client information at the hearing and will complete an appendix H form, which details with Declaration regarding Administration of Oath, Confirmation of Identity and Social Security Numbers.
These documents are aimed to confirm the identity for the trustee. American Notary USA is the notary agency of choice for individuals going through bankruptcy hearings in need of notary service. Our Notaries are experienced in the process and deliver with excellence.
