I agree with Valery here. You’ll need to pay your bills in time after bankruptcy fling and the companies usually ask for security deposits.

No, supposedly not. The public utilities like electricity etc. can’t refuse or disconnect service, just because you file for bankruptcy. However, the utility companies can ask for a deposit to continue with the future services, and you’ll have to be regular with the utility bill payments even after the bankruptcy filing.
