Chapter 7 Bankruptcy and the Automatic Stay
The Automatic Stay of Protection becomes effective as soon as the bankruptcy is filed. Implementation of the Automatic Stay is a huge benefit of bankruptcy. Once the Automatic Stay is in place, all collection action by your creditors must stop. Including, but not limited to, wage garnishments, foreclosure, bank levies and liens, collection calls, and repossession.
In most cases, the automatic stay remains active until your case is discharged or dismissed. However, filers should be aware that their creditors can file a Motion for Relief from the Automatic Stay, which will allow them to proceed with collection if the judge grants it. These relief motions will only be granted if the filer has done something to jeopardize their filing and the stay.
Additional Benefits of Bankruptcy
The benefits of bankruptcy don’t just start once your case is discharged, or even filed. Thus, from the moment you retain an experienced bankruptcy attorney, you can inform your creditors. Most good bankruptcy lawyers (including all of our Lawyers) should then take your creditor calls. Once you have informed your creditors that you have retained a bankruptcy attorney, they are no longer allowed to contact you. All of their questions regarding your debts must be addressed to your bankruptcy attorney.
