What an "automatic stay" means to a creditor
An automatic stay is an injunction by the bankruptcy court that immediately prohibits creditors from seeking repayment of debts from the debtor. It doesn't mean you're out of luck, but it does mean any efforts to recover what you are owed must be directed towards the court. Arthur S. Weitzner, P.A. assists creditors in reviewing a debtor's bankruptcy petition to see precisely where opportunities exist for the creditor to advance his claim. Attorney Weitzner is aggressive in meeting the court deadlines, which come quickly and require detailed responses. He takes the stress off his clients' shoulders.
Secured versus unsecured debt
A loan that is secured by collateral gives the creditor a lien against a debtor's asset. This is a huge advantage in bankruptcy court, where secured creditors go to the head of the line. Often the issue is straightforward, but where there is ambiguity about whether a debt is secured, a skilled attorney can make the difference to a creditor's chances of recovery.
The honesty requirement
The U.S. Supreme Court has stated that the Bankruptcy Code "gives to the honest but unfortunate debtor...a new opportunity in life." If the debtor took on the debt in bad faith or through some kind of dishonest manipulation, he can't discharge that debt. Likewise, if you believe there is misrepresentation or fraud in the debtor's bankruptcy petition, such as attempting to hide assets, you must bring those objections to the court. An experienced bankruptcy attorney can present a clear and convincing argument to help your cause.
