Wisconsin’s winter moratorium laws prohibit your utilities from being shut-off, even if you are delinquent on your utility bill, until April 15, 2016.
Case law from 2012 has made it such that a Chapter 128 filing is no longer a guarantee of staying a utility disconnection. Although Wisconsin Public Service has continued to honor the Chapter 128 stay, the only guaranteed way of preventing a disconnection (aside from catching up on the past-due amounts you owe) is to file bankruptcy.
Bankruptcy cases take a while to prepare properly. If you are struggling with your utility bills this winter, consult with an attorney now. Don’t wait until April to explore your options.
