The Ohio Bankruptcy Automatic Stay Provision



The Automatic Stay in Bankruptcy Stops Collection Activities


As your Canton, Ohio Bankruptcy Attorney, we can force creditors to end harassing phone calls, halt repossession actions, stop home foreclosure, remove bank levies, and other debt collection attempts including lawsuits, through the automatic stay provision of bankruptcy. The Automatic Stay puts a stop to all collection activities and provides protection to you and your property from creditors. This means that bill collectors and creditors must halt all contact for collection purposes, including those harassing collection calls, letters, emails, text messages, and in person visits. While some activities, such as Tax Audits are exempt from the automatic stay, in addition to being a Canton 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 Goes into Effect Immediately Upon Filing Bankruptcy

The automatic stay provision 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.


The Automatic Stay Provision of Bankruptcy Stops Creditors From Calling

Upon filing bankruptcy creditors are legally prohibited from collection activities, that means that they will stop calling.

Automatic Stay Prevents or Delays Home Foreclosure

If your mortgage payments are behind and the lender is pursuing foreclosure action, the automatic stay will stop the foreclosure action. Depending on the type of bankruptcy you are filing, this stoppage can provide you with the time you need to bring your payments current or possibly negotiate a loan modification.

Automatic Stay Stops Wage Garnishments

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.

Creditors are legally prohibited from pursuing collection activities against you, including repossession, from the minute you file for bankruptcy.

Automatic Stay Stops Eviction by Landlord

 If you have been served an eviction notice, the Automatic Stay provision of filing bankruptcy in Ohio can put a halt to eviction proceedings as well as any actions by the landlord to take possession of the property you are living in 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.
