Understanding the Automatic Stay in Bankruptcy

When you file for bankruptcy, the court issues an order called the Automatic Stay. This order halts any foreclosure actions and repossessions, allowing you time to reorganize your debts and save your home or car.

The Automatic Stay also protects you from creditor harassment, giving you the opportunity to focus on reorganizing your finances.

Another goal of the automatic stay is to create a level playing field for creditors, ensuring that no one can collect assets before others. When the automatic stay is invoked, creditors may not receive the full amount owing. Instead, they will receive a percentage of the debtor's assets. If a creditor believes they have valid reasons, they can ask the court to lift the stay so that collection operations can resume.

Duration of the Automatic Stay During Bankruptcy

The automatic stay is in effect for the term of the bankruptcy proceedings and will be lifted if the case is dismissed. Its duration is also determined by whether it applies to the debtor personally or to their property. Furthermore, the type of bankruptcy matters, with Chapter 13 proceedings typically lasting longer than Chapter 7 ones.
