The first thing you do is call the Consumers Energy Shut Off Department. You can call Mia at (248) 433-5923 or Dorothy at (248) 433-5963. They will give you some time to get your affairs in order.
Your next call should be make to my office at (989) 233-9389 to make an appointment for a free consultation with Attorney Mike Shovan at Ext 1 or Attorney Blair Stevenson at Ext 2 with the Bankruptcy Doctor. Bankruptcy will discharge your past due Consumers obligation. They may charge you a deposit for future service – but filing Bankruptcy wipes the slate clean.
