Automatic Stay in Bankruptcy

Put a Stop to Debt Collection Activities

If you are experiencing overwhelming debt, or if you are threatened by wage garnishments or lawsuits, filing for bankruptcy may be the solution you need to stop all debt collection efforts in their tracks. At the Law Offices of David Brodman, we have handled over 5,000 bankruptcy cases in the past 20 years, and we would be glad to use our knowledge and experience to help you too.

We understand how powerful debt can be, and how it can create a great deal of stress, worry, and anxiety for the debtor and their family. If debt collectors are calling you, and if you are receiving collection letters in the mail, you may find incredible relief through the automatic stay in bankruptcy.

What is the automatic stay?

The automatic stay is an injunction (judicial order) that automatically stops lawsuits, foreclosures, wage garnishments, and all debt collection activities against a debtor the moment the bankruptcy is filed.

The automatic stay is vital for debtors, especially if they are at risk of eviction, foreclosure, losing resources such as utility services, wage garnishments, or being found in contempt for not paying their child support.

The automatic stay in itself provides a very powerful reason for debtors to file for bankruptcy protection.

What the Automatic Stay Can Do

The automatic stay is a highly favored feature of bankruptcy, and it goes into effect whether a debtor files a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

The automatic stay affects the following common scenarios:

  • Foreclosures
  • Evictions
  • Utility Disconnections
  • Collections on Overpayments of Public Benefits
  • Wage Garnishments
  • IRS Tax Liens
  • IRS Seizures of Property or Income

    An automatic stay cannot prevent IRS audits, nor can is stop the collection of child support or alimony.
