What is the automatic stay?

When a bankruptcy case is filed, a stay is automatically entered that prevents many types of collection activities against a debtor or a debtor’s property. Common examples of actions that creditors are often not allowed to take include:

  • Commencing or continuing a lawsuit.
  • Repossessing or foreclosing on a debtor’s property.
  • Contacting the debtor by mail or telephone.
