Automatic Stay in Bankruptcy
Filing for bankruptcy results in the issuance of an automatic stay, which makes it against the law for creditors to continue with collection attempts against you.
When an automatic stay is imposed, creditors are not able to:
- File a lien against your property
- Foreclose on your home
- Evict you from your apartment / condominium
- Repossess your property
- Call you at home or work
You can receive protection from creditors by filing for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. Not only will bankruptcy end the harassment that you are facing from your creditors, but it can also provide you with the debt relief you need.
