Protection From Creditor Actions

One of the main advantages to filing bankruptcy is obtaining the benefit of the automatic stay. 

Under 11 U.S.C. § 362, this protection arises as soon as a bankruptcy Petition is filed.  It stops all creditor collection activities, garnishments, levies and foreclosures.  This means that a creditor is stopped from suing you, foreclosing on your property, and removing funds from your bank account to satisfy a Judgment.

EXCEPTIONS TO THE AUTOMATIC STAY

  • Motions for Relief from Stay
  • Motions for In rem relief
  • Time limits imposed on the automatic stay because of prior bankruptcy filings
