My mortgage company just filed a motion for relief from the automatic stay in my bankruptcy case. What do I do?

It depends on whether you want to keep the home or give it up.

Short Answer:

Fight it if you want to try to save the home.

Ignore it if you’re surrendering the home anyways.

Long Answer:

So when you file bankruptcy, the Bankruptcy Court imposes something called the automatic stay that stays (stops) creditor actions like garnishment, foreclosure, and repossession.
