FAQs about Debt & COVID 19

Geraci Law wants to help you answer questions about debt and collections because of the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19.  Reviewing your financial situation with an experienced bankruptcy firm (like Geraci Law) is almost a GREAT idea if you are struggling financially.

Are the bankruptcy courts open?

Yes but there are are no in-person meetings. BUT, we are able to file Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy petitions to get the automatic stay protection. The courts are still processing filed petitions. There is no delay in case filing. Oftentimes Geraci Law can file a case the same or next day.

Can bill collectors sue me when courts reopen?

ABSOLUTELY. Governor J.B. Pritzer suspended summons service so creditors cannot serve a garnishment or citation to discover assets. Most collection agencies and finance companies are put on hold during COVID-19. Once the order ends – collectors can start to sue, garnish, and collect. Filing a bankruptcy NOW stops the future collection.

Are Geraci Law offices open?

Yes and no. Yes Geraci Law is open and ready to help. No, the physical locations are not open to protect our staff and clients. We can meet with you via phone or video.
