The Automatic Stay

Palatine Automatic Stay Attorney

An almost immediate benefit that comes with filing for bankruptcy protection is the implementation of the automatic stay. This provision of the Bankruptcy Code puts an immediate stop to collection efforts by most creditors as soon as a bankruptcy filing is made. If a creditor persistently violates the automatic stay, you may be awarded financial damages and attorney’s fees.

At The Law Offices of James M. Kelly, our Palatine automatic stay lawyer has been helping people throughout Illinois successfully resolve their debt problems for more than 23 years. If you are tired of being harassed by creditors, we may be able to help you get the relief you need.

Bankruptcy Provides Protection From Creditor Harassment

When you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, creditors must stop nearly all collection actions, including:

  • Telephone calls
  • Collection letters
  • Lawsuits
  • Wage garnishments
  • Repossessions
  • Foreclosure

In some cases, a creditor may file a petition with the court to resume collection efforts. Depending on the nature of the debt in question, our Palatine debt relief attorney can advise you on whether or not to challenge the petition. However, if the creditor is seeking to resume foreclosure efforts, repossess a vehicle or terminate a lease, we will fight for your rights in court. In some cases, we may be able to reach a favorable resolution to the problem through creditor negotiations. In every case, we are committed to looking out for your best interests.
