Will bankruptcy stop a judgment?


Our Professional Answer

A bankruptcy will keep a creditor who has not received a judgment from getting one. That will be like any others in your bankruptcy. If a creditor has received a judgment, but they’ve not yet executed on it, the bankruptcy will treat them just like any other creditor and will allow the debt to be discharged. If they have gotten the lien, and you promptly file the bankruptcy, we can typically strip that lien from the properties. You will also discharge that debt.
