How to Get an Automatic Stay in Bankruptcy
When you file for bankruptcy, an automatic stay will immediately go into effect. This order will stop any pending lawsuits, foreclosures, repossessions, and any other collection actions. It will also stop any wage garnishments, so you can catch your breath and get back on your feet.
The automatic stay will remain in place until the bankruptcy court issues a decision on your case. If you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the automatic stay will remain in place until your repayment plan is confirmed. If you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the automatic stay will remain in place until your case is closed.
What Happens if I Violate the Automatic Stay?
If you violate the automatic stay, you could be charged with a serious federal offense. Our Stockton bankruptcy attorneys can help you navigate the bankruptcy process, ensuring that you receive all the automatic stay protections you are entitled to.
In some cases, you may need to request an extension of the automatic stay. Our bankruptcy attorneys can help you with this, too.
Let our Stockton attorneys help you get the automatic stay you need to get back on your feet. Call (209) 243-7560 now or contact us online.
