What To Do If A Creditor Violates The Automatic Stay
If you are facing a debt collection lawsuit, filing for bankruptcy can provide relief by instituting an automatic stay. This stop creditors from coming after you or your property while the bankruptcy process is underway. However, if a creditor continues to pursue you despite the stay, it is important to take action in order to protect yourself and your assets.
When a creditor violates the automatic stay it is considered an act of contempt and can result in legal consequences. If this happens, notify your attorney right away as they will be able to advise on specific steps that need to be taken based on your individual situation. Your lawyer may then contact the creditor directly or file a motion with the court requesting sanctions against them for violating the stay. The court may choose to impose additional fees or fines on the creditor for their behavior, which could lead them to reconsider their actions going forward.
