Automatic Stay

What Does an Automatic Stay Do?


The Automatic Stay starts upon the filing of any bankruptcy petition and immediately stops all actions to collect from any party in any jurisdiction, state of federal court.  It prevents any contact or action against you through an immediate order, and the protections of the Federal Bankruptcy Court.  It provides for a period of uninterrupted recovery without interference from contact or continued prosecution by creditors as the petitioner is allowed to reorganize their finances under Chapter 7, 11 or 13 bankruptcy.  The Automatic Stay under Chapter 13 even prevents action against other co-signors or guarantors in consumer debts without their filing.


At The Law Offices of Neil Crane, LLC, in Connecticut, we use customized preparation and the protection of the Automatic Stay to conduct properly administered cases with effective results under any chapter of bankruptcy.  The Bankruptcy Code has strong provisions for your financial future, and the protections of the Automatic Stay are critical to the bankruptcy process.  The stay is a critical step to our ability to produce predictable and prompt solutions to otherwise unmanageable financial problems.


The automatic stay will put an immediate stop to:


  • Any court actions
  • Any phone calls or contact
  • Wage garnishment
  • Bank levy
  • Property repossession
  • Attachments
  • Foreclosure
  • Lawsuits and judgments against you


The filing of a case in Connecticut will immediately stop all collection efforts on legal action in any state or jurisdiction throughout the country.  All further contact from creditors or legal action will be only with our experienced attorneys, and only here in Connecticut.

One of the major benefits of working with a bankruptcy attorney is that we will take over all communications from creditors on your behalf and take legal action against them if they violate the terms of the automatic stay.


In our office, all phone calls are taken by experienced paralegals and attorneys live, and never by voicemail.  This assures your uninterrupted protection throughout our representation.


The personalized and dedicated service of our attorneys can provide you with responsive action and throughout planning.  Perfect preparation along with the powers of the automatic stay make for excellent, predictable results.


Falling into financial troubles and struggling with debt payment can result in aggressive tactics from creditors seeking to collect on overdue debt, and a complete loss of control.  Your personal financial health is lost to continuing efforts trying to resolve endless collection efforts without success.


The distraction and harassment of creditor phone calls and mailings can become very stressful and detrimental to your recovery.  People and families in financial trouble also face the very real threats of bank account levy, wage garnishment, property repossession and lawsuits.  Regardless of what stage you or your business is at in your financial struggles, consultation with an experienced Connecticut bankruptcy lawyer can help you enact the most useful debt relief option for your unique situation and consider the power of an automatic stay.
