Stop Garnishment Of Wages

Not only does the automatic stay interrupt standard collection calls and letters, it also covers such other actions as the following:

  • Any lawsuit against a debtor in bankruptcy
  • Garnishment, attachment, repossession or other collection strategies
  • Mortgage foreclosure
  • Eviction
  • Enforcement of judgments or liens

There are a few exceptions to the automatic stay that generally have to do with child support and alimony obligations. Under some circumstances, a creditor can also ask the bankruptcy court for permission – relief from the automatic stay – to resume collection efforts. These are most common when the creditor’s claim is supported by an interest in collateral. We can negotiate with the creditor to protect your interests in these situations.
