What Happens When I File an Emergency Bankruptcy Petition?
Filing for bankruptcy enacts the automatic stay, a legal injunction that stops creditors from seizing your property and taking other legal actions against you.
An emergency bankruptcy can prevent many actions, such as:
- Foreclosure on a home
- Car repossessions
- Wage garnishments
- Creditor lawsuits
- Home evictions for unpaid rent
The automatic stay goes into effect immediately after you file, which makes an emergency filing an option for stopping debt collection activities even up to the last possible minute.
How Do I File for Emergency Bankruptcy?
Not all of the paperwork required for bankruptcy needs to be included in the emergency filing. However, if there is missing information in the initial filing, the rest needs to be submitted within 14 days.
To file an emergency bankruptcy:
- You need to fill out the required emergency bankruptcy forms (also called a skeleton filing).
- You must include a list of your known creditors to the court. Your attorney can send an immediately notice of your bankruptcy to your creditors.
- You must complete a credit counseling course before filing for bankruptcy, but our law office can work with you to make sure you can complete this requirement in an expedient manner.
- You must pay the filing fee at the time of filing.
Our lawyers have handled numerous emergency filing for clients throughout the Los Angeles area and can help you pursue your debt relief goals no matter how urgent your situation is.
