What is an Automatic Stay?

Transcription:
00:00 [Music]00:03 hi my name is Robert Geller and my law
00:07 firm is the lost Robin M Geller PA we
00:10 are a consumer bankruptcy firm and today
00:14 I want to talk to you about the
00:17 automatic stay what is the automatic
00:20 stay so when we file a bankruptcy for a
00:23 client
00:25 automatically we get a stay what does
00:29 that mean that means that the creditors
00:32 have to stop everything that they’re
00:34 doing they gotta stop their garnishment
00:37 they gotta stop their foreclosure they
00:40 gotta stop their lawsuits they can’t
00:42 bother you anymore the creditors have to
00:45 stop calling you as soon as I push that
00:48 button electronically and file your case
00:51 they have to stay that’s called an L
00:54 that automatic stay that’s in Section
00:56 362 of the Bankruptcy Code
00:58 what can creditors do about the
01:00 automatic stay well they can ask the
01:02 Bankruptcy Court for permission under
01:05 certain circumstances what for relief
01:08 from this day but before they get that
01:11 relief they gotta file a motion go to
01:14 court and only under certain
01:16 circumstances can they get that relief
01:18 from the automatic stay generally the
01:20 automatic stay applies throughout the
01:22 entire case and what that really means
01:26 is let’s say you’re getting a
01:27 garnishment once the bankruptcies filed
01:30 the creditor actually has a duty to tell
01:34 the court the state court that’s
01:36 garnishing your wages that a bankruptcy
01:39 has been filed and they have to get that
01:42 garnishment taken off of your wages so
01:45 that you could continue to get your
01:46 wages and then when the bankruptcy goes
01:48 through that they can no longer garnish
01:51 your wages ever again because you’ll at
01:54 that point get a bankruptcy discharge
01:56 prohibiting the creditor from ever
01:59 collecting from you or ever trying to
02:02 get any money so an automatic stay is
02:05 just that as soon as the case is filed
02:07 it automatically goes into a into
02:10 play I am Robert Geller and I want to
02:13 help you build a brighter future so give
02:15 us a call thank you
