Bankruptcy's Automatic Stay

The automatic stay goes into effect when you file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. It puts a stop to creditors' collection efforts against you. But there are situations when the automatic stay does not apply, and times when the creditor can ask the judge to remove (lift) the stay.
