The Automatic Stay

Bankruptcy is the federal law that permits people and businesses to discharge their debt, and get a fresh financial start.    An “automatic stay” is issued when a bankruptcy case is filed.  The automatic stay puts an immediate stop to all collection actions – garnishments, foreclosures, repossessions, court hearings and shut-off notices are all cancelled immediately.

The Discharge Order

Once your Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 is filed,  the creditors are off your back,  and your fresh start begins.  At the end of the bankruptcy case, a discharge order is entered which forever bars creditors from  collecting the debt.   Bankruptcy laws are complex,  so contact Patrick S. Fragel to evaluate your options.
