Stop a Creditor Lawsuit: File Bankruptcy
The best way to stop a creditor lawsuit is to file for bankruptcy protection. Upon filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, an automatic stay will go into effect stopping all creditor collections activities, including lawsuits and creditor harassment. Whether the lawsuit was just filed or the court already ordered a judgment against you, any current proceedings, including wage garnishment, will immediately stop.
When you hire Acosta Law, we will file a response to any lawsuit against you, assist you in filing for bankruptcy relief and have the lawsuit dismissed. If a creditor or bank has hired a lawyer, shouldn't you have one too?
If a creditor is threatening to file a lawsuit in order to repossess your property or garnish your wages, the time to act is right now. At Acosta Law, we offer every potential client a free initial consultation. Don't lose your home, car or wealth.
