What You Should Know About The “Automatic Stay”

The moment you file for bankruptcy, the bankruptcy judge issues a Federal court order called an “automatic stay.” The automatic stay tells your creditors to immediately cease any efforts at collections — that means no more harassing phone calls and no more past due notices in the mail. Foreclosure and repossession efforts both must cease as well. If your wages are being garnished, the garnishment will be lifted.

What if Creditor Harassment Continues?

If your creditors continue to try to collect their debt from you even after you have filed for bankruptcy, you can prosecute them in court and win monetary damages. Bankruptcy provides immediate, indisputable relief from debt and creditor harassment.

Don’t Take Legal Advice from Your Creditors

Your creditors are only interested in one thing: getting their money back. They are not concerned with your best interests. They will warn you strongly against filing for bankruptcy, and many times there is no truth to their arguments, they will be strongly biased against it. An attorney has a legal obligation to consider your best interests first.
