Automatic Stay Of Bankruptcy

The automatic stay of bankruptcy comes into effect almost immediately after filing a bankruptcy petition. It has the same effect whether you file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. It is an enforceable order from the federal Bankruptcy Court that prevents further collection actions against you and makes it illegal for creditors to contact you in any way.

When your bankruptcy petition is filed properly with an experienced and thorough bankruptcy attorney at Sigmon & Henderson, PLLC, you get an uninterrupted financial recovery period as the automatic stay:

  • Stops lawsuits, judgments and any other court actions against you
  • Stops creditor harassment and communication
  • Stops repossessions
  • Stops foreclosure
  • Stops wage garnishment, account levies and attachments
