Bankruptcy and the Coronavirus (COVID-19)
The coronavirus has upended many services and processes including the bankruptcy process. What we know so far is that cases CAN BE FILED. We also know that while some hearings are scheduled via teleconferencing, others are reschedule for later dates, so there is no worry about a mandatory court appearance while maintaining health safety.
Creditors have not indicated that they will cease collections during this confusing and constantly changing time. However, filing a bankruptcy petition puts the automatic stay into action therefore, protecting you from creditors. Creditors can no longer pursue collections once your case is filed. This means lawsuits, wage garnishments, and creditor harassment stops.
