What Is The Automatic Bankruptcy Stay?

The automatic stay is an important aspect of the bankruptcy process. Once you file a bankruptcy petition, the bankruptcy laws’ provision of an automatic stay requires that all of your creditors and their agents stop all collection efforts, lawsuits and foreclosure proceedings against you. The automatic stay gives you the opportunity to deal with your financial affairs without interference from your creditors and harassing debt collectors.

Once you have paid our office a small retainer fee, a Massachusetts bankruptcy lawyer with the Crossley Law Offices will deal with your creditors and advise them of your intent to file a bankruptcy. Our bankruptcy lawyers do this to reduce or eliminate the number of debt collection calls that you receive. You can even provide your creditors and debt collectors with our law firm’s phone number and the name of your bankruptcy lawyer, and inform your creditors that they have to deal with our law office from now on. This is even before your bankruptcy case has been filed.
