Stop Creditors with Automatic Stay

Judge Gavel

Filing for bankruptcy is not an easy decision. For whatever circumstances that led to filing for bankruptcy, there is some hope with automatic stay. Automatic stay is an integral part when filing for bankruptcy. The court issues automatic stay when you file for bankruptcy which stops creditors from collecting on debts you owe during the bankruptcy process. Automatic stay prevents a creditor, collection agency, government entity, or others from filing a lawsuit against you on monies owed.

Automatic Stay Prevents:
• Utilities from being disconnected. Automatic stay will often prevent a utility company from disconnecting your telephone, gas, electric, or water services during your ongoing bankruptcy case.
• Foreclosures: Automatic stay will stop the foreclosure proceedings but once automatic stay is lifted the foreclosure proceedings will begin. Consider filing for Chapter 13 if you wish to keep your home.
• Evictions: Automatic stay may be able to suspend an eviction proceeding if the landlord is trying to evict you before them receiving a court order. However, the landlord may ask that you not stay in their property while waiting for automatic stay expire.
• Wage Garnishments: Automatic stay puts a stop to wage garnishments deducted from your paycheck to where you receive your whole paycheck.
Automatic stay will not prevent the owing of child or spousal support, repaying loans against your pension, divorce, and any criminal prosecutions.

They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

Mr. Gingold was recommended by an attorney I had worked with previously. I met with Ira Gingold to discuss credit issues. He went over each specific issue thoroughly. He advised me of the potential outcomes. He did all this in one meeting for a very reasonable price. When we finished I was confident in moving forward with a resolution. He definitely wants to help people take the appropriate course of action for their circumstance.

Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Wow! I am finally out of debt and can say that I am debt free after completing my chapter 7 bankruptcy case with Gingold and Gingold. Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

Sherard W.

I cannot say enough about this law firm. From the initial consultation to our discharge, the entire office kept me updated with every step of the entire process. I came to the Gingold after a bad experience with another law firm. Ira and Jamie immediately began treating me like family through this experience. In the end, they assisted with eliminating many debts including my 2nd mortgage. I cannot say enough about the experience and knowledge that Ira brought to the table from the office visits to the court time. Thank you very much for helping me through this tough time. Thank you.
