The number of Utahns who filed for bankruptcy increased 11 percent in December of 2016 from December 2015.

According to BankruptcyWatch President Lance Wickham, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for Utah received a total of 793 filings during December of 2016, up from the 708 bankruptcy petitions from the same period a year ago. "Filings were up during December but given the recent election results it is anyone's guess if that will continue into the next year," Wickham said.
