Bankruptcy And The Automatic Stay

The bankruptcy automatic stay puts an immediate stop to all attempts by creditors to collect on debts you owe. Here are just a few examples of the types of actions bankruptcy will stop:

  • Garnishments: If a creditor has garnished your paycheck or your bank account, filing bankruptcy will stop it immediately.
  • Repossessions: Filing bankruptcy will prevent a creditor from repossessing your car or other assets.
  • Lawsuits: Filing bankruptcy will put an immediate stop to lawsuits to recover money.
  • Phone calls: Once you file bankruptcy, creditors will be barred from calling you. If the calls continue, you may be able to sue the creditor and recover damages.
