What is an “Automatic Stay?”

In bankruptcy, you’ll hear and start to use the phrase “Automatic Stay.” As soon as the bankruptcy petition (Chapter 7 or Chapter 13) is filed in the bankruptcy court of Akron or Cleveland, Ohio, an Automatic Stay is issued to your creditors and lenders.

The Automatic Stay in bankruptcy stops all collection efforts from your creditors, ceases all lawsuits, repossessions, foreclosures, wage garnishments, and any collection activity against the person filing bankruptcy.
