Doctor Credit

In a business bankruptcy, what is a motion to lift the automatic stay?

Answer: It is a request by a creditor to the Court that would allow the creditor to take an action against a debtor or the debtor's property that would otherwise be prohibited by the automatic stay provisions of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. The automatic stay is an injunction that stops lawsuits, foreclosures, garnishments, and collection activity against a debtor as soon as a bankruptcy petition is filed.
