As a law professor I told my students that parts of bankruptcy were magical.
When a bankruptcy is filed a “magical” umbrella, called the automatic stay, protects the debtor and their property. This umbrella is so powerful that it stops almost everyone in their tracks – even the IRS. Unless a bankruptcy court orders otherwise a mortgage company, bill collector or creditor cannot meddle with the debtor or any property of the debtor.
Warning: bankruptcy is complicated and must be treated with respect. Many people file bankruptcy on their own or using inexperienced attorneys. This can be the beginning of a nightmare. These folks lose their tax refunds, vehicles, inheritance and certain property that is important to them. Normally these problems can be avoided if a bankruptcy is planned properly.
