Prevent Foreclosure, Repossessions And Garnishments In Michigan

When you file bankruptcy, you are protected by the "automatic stay." The automatic stay requires creditors to put an immediate stop to all debt collection efforts. The following are examples of creditor actions that can be stopped when you file bankruptcy:

  • Home foreclosure: Filing bankruptcy will stop the foreclosure and give you time to decide whether to keep the home or give it up.
  • Auto repossession: Filing bankruptcy will stop a repossession. As long as the car has not been sold, you can get it back.
  • Harassing phone calls: Once you file bankruptcy, creditors cannot call you or your employer.
  • Lawsuit judgments: Filing bankruptcy puts an immediate stop to collection of lawsuit judgments.
  • Wage garnishments: Filing bankruptcy will stop the garnishment. If you act soon enough, it may allow you to get garnished wages back.
  • Bank account garnishments: Filing bankruptcy will stop the garnishment. If you act soon enough, it may allow you to get your money back.

Our attorneys have been helping individuals and business owners in Michigan protect their assets since 1977.
