Our Attorneys Will Stand Up For You
When you file bankruptcy, whether under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, one of the first things is the issuance of an automatic stay. Essentially, this stay stops creditors from contacting you or taking any further steps to collect the debt. Creditors must stop collection activities or face punishment by the court. This stay protects you from many things, including:
- Threatening letters
- Repeated calls to your home or workplace
- Foreclosure or repossession of property
- Wage garnishment
If a creditor continues to harass you after the automatic stay is issued, then you may have the right to pursue sanctions against that creditor. With more than 30 years of experience each, attorneys Levitt and Slafkes can explain your rights and help you take the necessary steps to protect them.
