Automatic Stay, Bankruptcy Lawyer Buffalo NY
What is the Automatic Stay in Bankruptcy?
When a debtor files a bankruptcy petition, the filing triggers an injunction against the continuance of any action by any creditor against the debtor or the debtor's property.
The automatic stay does not stop Criminal Proceedings, or Actions for Child Support or Maintenace.
How Long Does The Automatic Stay Remains in Effect?
The stay remains in effect until a Bankruptcy Judge lifts the stay at the request of a creditor for cause, the debtor gets discharged, or an item of property is no longer property of the estate.
Violations of the Stay?
Anyone who willfully violates the stay is liable for actual damages caused by the violation and sometimes for punitive damages.
If you want to file for Bankruptcy to get a fresh start, and are searching for an experienced Bankruptcy Attorney, look no further.
