NASHVILLE, TN, June 25, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Nashville bankruptcy attorneys at Clark & Washington wish to inform the public that it is a good idea to file for bankruptcy after being served with a lawsuit. There are many benefits to filing for bankruptcy after you are served that can help protect your finances from being taken by creditors.

If a creditor files a lawsuit against you to collect on a debt that you owe, your bankruptcy plans will not be halted. In fact, bankruptcy can be the remedy you need most. If you file for bankruptcy before your court date stemming from a filed lawsuit or after a judgment has been entered against you for a debt owed to a creditor, your bankruptcy will erase the debt and the judgement against you, provided the debt is one that is dischargeable. This occurs because once you file for bankruptcy, you are protected by an automatic stay.

An automatic stay is an injunction that prevents any creditors from collecting debts from an individual that has declared bankruptcy. The automatic stay goes into effect as soon as you file for bankruptcy. The injunction that is imposed by an automatic stay is not absolute -- it excludes certain forms of debt such as child support and debts owed to government agencies for fines. Moreover, if a creditor believes that they have sufficient cause, they can petition the court to lift an automatic stay so they can continue collection attempts.

In some cases, the court will grant this petition, however, the ultimate determination of whether the petition will be granted will depend on the specific facts of each case. Because of this uncertainty, it is always wise to consult with one of the experienced Nashville bankruptcy lawyers at Clark & Washington.
