The Automatic Stay provision of bankruptcy puts a stop to all collection activities and provides protection to you and your property from creditors. This means an end to all contact for collection purposes by the creditor, including those harassing collection calls, letters, emails, text messages, and in person visits. While some activities, such as Tax Audits are exempt from the stay, in addition to being a Columbus, Ohio Bankruptcy Attorney, Ken Sheppard, Jr. is a Federal Tax Lawyer and can assist you with IRS, State, and Local taxation issues.
The automatic stay provision of bankruptcy goes into effect immediately upon filing bankruptcy paperwork with the courts. This means that the collectors are legally required to stop calling you as soon as they learn that you have filed for bankruptcy.
Upon filing bankruptcy creditors are legally prohibited from collection activities, that means that they will stop calling.
If your mortgage payments are behind and the lender is pursuing foreclosure action, the automatic stay will halt the foreclosure. Depending on the type of bankruptcy you are filing, this halt can provide you with the time you need to bring your payments current or negotiate a loan modification.
If your wages are being garnished, petitioning to file bankruptcy with the Ohio courts can end most wage garnishments. When you file for an Ohio chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy an automatic stay goes into effect which will stop your wages from being garnished by creditors.
Is your vehicle lender threatening repossession? You don’t have to hide your vehicle. The Automatic Stay provision in bankruptcy code can protect your vehicle along with your other assets. Creditors are legally prohibited from pursuing collection activities against you, including repossession, from the minute you file for bankruptcy. This means that whether it’s your car that is up for repossession, a motorcycle, boat, tractor, large screen television, or another item, the repossession can be halted.
If you have been served an eviction notice, the Automatic Stay provision of filing bankruptcy in Ohio can halt the eviction proceedings as well as any actions by the landlord to take possession of the rental property or to pursue collection of damages without first gaining permission from the bankruptcy courts. The action of staying an eviction proceeding can provide you the necessary time to remedy the situation with the landlord or rental company, or to pursue new living arrangements.
Whether you are considering bankruptcy alternatives such as debt settlement, payment plans, seeking income based assistance, or filing bankruptcy to erase medical bills, the Columbus Ohio bankruptcy Attorneys at Sheppard Law Offices can provide you with the support and assistance you need to put you on the appropriate financial track.
