An automatic stay offers immediate relief in bankruptcy

The events leading up to having to file for bankruptcy often include having to deal with multiple creditor phone calls per day and harassing letters.

Filing for bankruptcy is a huge deal because there are pros and cons that you might have to deal with as part of the process.
