Automatic Stay

The automatic stay is a powerful tool for consumers who are being harassed by creditors. When our bankruptcy attorney, Andrew Bourey, petitions the court for bankruptcy on your behalf, the court will issue an automatic stay.

The automatic stay provides immediate relief from creditor harassment. Once it is in place, creditors are prohibited by law from attempting to contact you to collect a debt. This means the phone calls and letters from creditors, wage garnishment, foreclosure actions and vehicle repossession proceedings will stop.

If you do receive phone calls from debt collectors, you can direct them to call our law firm. It is against the law for them to continue contacting you in an attempt to collect the debt.

To many people living with the stress of creditor harassment, the automatic stay lifts the weight off their shoulders. Debt can be eliminated, and you can obtain a fresh start through bankruptcy.
