Will Bankruptcy Stop Lawsuits?
Georgia Bankruptcy Attorneys
If you have fallen behind in your bills and have been threatened or served with a lawsuit to collect a debt, filing personal bankruptcy can help you stop the process and get a fresh financial start. When you file bankruptcy, whether Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, the automatic stay provision of the bankruptcy laws kicks in, preventing creditors from trying to collect debts. This means lawsuits, threatening phone calls and garnishments will stop. An experienced bankruptcy attorney can explain how the automatic stay works.

Stopping Lawsuits Through Bankruptcy
When you are struggling to pay your bills, it seems like you can never get your head above water. Every time you turn around, someone is calling, sending you a letter or threatening legal action to collect a debt. The automatic stay prohibits your creditors from taking any action to collect from you. That means they can’t call you, write you, or file or start a lawsuit against you.
At Gingold & Gingold LLC, we know the bankruptcy laws and can move quickly to put the protections of the automatic stay in place. We will help you stop lawsuits against you, whether you decide to permanently discharge debts under Chapter 7, or you want to repay your debts under Chapter 13.
