Understanding the Bankruptcy Court's Automatic Stay
When your bankruptcy petition is filed with the bankruptcy court, the court will issue an "automatic stay." The automatic stay is a court order barring any further collection efforts by creditors. The automatic stay can immediately:
- Stop creditors from calling you at all
- Stop creditors from sending any form of collection letter
- Stop foreclosure or delay foreclosure, including a sheriff's sale
- Stop repossession efforts
- Stop garnishment of wages
- Stop bank levies
- Stop lawsuits from proceeding
- Stop all other collection efforts
For many people, it is difficult to realize how real a debt problem is until they receive a foreclosure notice, car repossession notice or wage garnishment. It is important to understand that the automatic stay can provide immediate relief — it happens at the beginning of the bankruptcy filing process, not the end.
