Did you know that the filing of a bankruptcy stops lawsuits?
The filing of a bankruptcy stops all legal action against you it even stops lawsuits.
If you have recently been served with a lawsuit filing a bankruptcy will stop the lawsuit. It is important to file the bankruptcy before a default judgment is entered against you in the lawsuit. A defendant has 30 days from the date they are served with a lawsuit to file an answer, however if they file a bankruptcy within that time it stops the lawsuit. A default judgment is entered against you after the 30 day period expires and then the creditor can attach a lien against your property. The filing of the bankruptcy stops lawsuits no matter how old they are but the sooner you file the bankruptcy the better off you will be because the lawsuit will stop.
