Automatic Stays

Automatic Stays - Cuyahoga County

In times of financial turmoil, individuals and businesses often find themselves facing overwhelming debt and creditor actions. To offer a lifeline and a chance at financial recovery, the legal system provides a crucial tool known as the automatic stay. This legal provision is a cornerstone of bankruptcy law, offering debtors temporary relief from creditor actions and a breathing space to regroup and reorganize their financial affairs.

What is an Automatic Stay?

An Automatic Stay is a legal injunction that stops most collection actions against you and your property the moment you file for bankruptcy. This means that creditors are not allowed to contact you, garnish your wages, or repossess your assets without permission from the court.
