Get A Fresh Start
Chapter 7 is often called the fresh start option because it allows you to wipe out most or all of your unsecured debt, including medical bills, credit card bills and utility bills. It offers individuals immediate relief from creditors.
The minute a Chapter 7 is filed, an "automatic stay" goes into effect. This means that no creditor can call you, they cannot write you and they cannot sue you. If a lawsuit is already pending against you, it is stopped upon your bankruptcy filing. The filing of a bankruptcy procedure will immediately stop collection calls and collection actions against you, and will terminate wage garnishments. Any violations of your rights by a creditor are violations of federal law and are taken very seriously. These violations of the "automatic stay" provision or discharge provision under the United States Bankruptcy Code may provide you with legal rights against the creditor and allow you to collect money damages against any creditor attempting to collect its debts subsequent to the filing of your bankruptcy petition.
