What is an Automatic Stay?

An automatic stay is considered a powerful legal tool designed to provide immediate relief to individuals or businesses facing financial difficulties. Put simply, it is a legal injunction that halts creditors and collection agencies from pursuing debts or taking legal action against you. This essential protection is initiated the moment you file for bankruptcy, whether it's under Chapter 7, Chapter 11, or Chapter 13.

However, it does not protect you from all collection actions. Some collection actions that can occur after you file for bankruptcy include:

  • Creditors or lenders can still contact you to discuss the debt
  • Creditors can still sell assets that are not protected by the bankruptcy
  • Creditors can still sue you and take your non-exempt assets
  • You may still be liable for post-petition debts
  • You may still be liable for taxes, fees, and penalties
  • What should I do if I'm considering filing for bankruptcy protection?
    If you are considering filing for bankruptcy protection it is important to speak with an experienced attorney who can review your unique situation and provide legal advice so that you can move forward and find financial freedom.
  • Does filing for bankruptcy mean my business will close?
    Not necessarily. Depending on the chapter of bankruptcy that is filed, a business may be able to continue operations while reorganizing their debts in a payment plan.

Hear From Our Happy Clients

  • ""His dedication to getting his clients the best outcome is relentless.""
    "I am so honored to leave Ron and his team this great review. I called all over Florida to find a lawyer that would help me with my real estate property issue and no one would even listen to me they just told me, we can not help you. When I first called Bilu Law, I felt they cared about their clients. Johanna scheduled a meeting with Ron right away, and when I spoke to Ron, he was the best because he took the time to listen to my situation and asked all the right questions. The best question he asked was what would I consider a good outcome and after telling him, he made that his North Star. After a few more meetings to understand my situation better, he told me how much it would cost me to have him try to resolve this issue with the best outcome and it was very reasonable. Among his profession, I would consider Ron to be among the best. His dedication to getting his clients the best outcome is relentless. I will refer him to all my friends and family and consider him a dear friend."

  • ""Ron Bilu and his associates were willing to fight for me when other firms all wanted to throw in the towel.""
    "Ron Bilu and his associates were willing to fight for me when other firms all wanted to throw in the towel. Ron’s professionalism and dedication ended with the best outcome I could ask for. I highly recommend Ron and his firm, especially Attorney Andrea Valencia who went above and beyond for me, a true asset to the firm. Many thanks to all."

  • ""I highly recommend this office to deliver and satisfactorily settle your legal matters.""
    "Bilu Law firm has advised and completed the paperwork on creating a Trust and I am satisfied with how thorough and professional Andrea and Annabella were in executing the task. Today, I'd like to thank the team of Nicholas and Andrea for accepting another case and delivering as promised, in a relatively short period of time and again, a satisfactory outcome. I want to especially thank Andrea for the knowledgeable and professional representation she exhibited as she guided me through the process. In addition, I express my appreciation for other members of your staff. ALL calls were passed on and one could consistently expect a quick response. There is a warmth from the front door, by staff to the discussion of business at hand. Wait time was never more than 3-5 minutes at each office visit. The advent of Covid- 19 and the societal interruptions it created, did nothing to deter the level of service offered by this firm. I highly recommend this office to deliver and satisfactorily settle your legal matters."

How to Qualify for Automatic Stay Protection

In order to qualify for the automatic stay, you must file a petition for bankruptcy. There are two types of bankruptcy that you can file for:

  • A consumer bankruptcy, which is used by individuals
  • A business bankruptcy, which is used by businesses

Once you file, the court will assign you a bankruptcy trustee. The trustee will investigate your finances and advise the court on what type of bankruptcy is best for you.

Once the court issues the automatic stay, you will be protected from most collection actions. The automatic stay will last until your case is closed. Once your case is closed, the automatic stay will become a discharge order, which will eliminate your debts and prevent further collection action.
