The Automatic Stay
Upon the filing chapter 7 petition, an injunction is automatically imposed called the “automatic stay”. The automatic stay immediately stops all collection actions against the debtor or the debtor’s property. The stay arises by operation of law and requires no judicial action. As long as the stay is in effect, creditors may not initiate or continue lawsuits, wage garnishments, bank restrains or even telephone calls and debt collection letters demanding payments without asking the court to be relived of the automatically stay.
If you have questions or concerns about the automatic stay, we urge you to contact The Law Offices of Robert J. Nahoum, P.C. today by calling 845-232-0202.
