Liquidated Claim


Liquidated Claim

If a petitioner is filing bankruptcy they must prepare a list of all their debts in a bankruptcy schedule. The bankruptcy schedule will list the debtor's debts and identity each claim as disputed/undisputed and contingent / noncontingent and liquidated / unliquidated.

Filing requirements can vary for different bankruptcy petitions. Creditors under Chapter 7 Bankruptcy and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy must file their claims for debts regardless of the type of debts. Chapter 11 Bankruptcy creditors can, in certain cases, either file a claim requesting another payment amount or they can accept the payment as scheduled (only for claims which are undisputed, liquidated or noncontingent).
