Automatic Stay (Relief from)

Rev. 07/07/15
A motion for relief from the automatic stay is filed by creditors to seek permission of the court to take actions necessary to protect their interests (i.e. repossession or foreclosure). A motion for relief from stay may not be combined with a request for any other relief and the movant must seek concurrence of the debtor and the trustee, if one has been appointed. A certificate of concurrence/non-concurrence must accompany the motion or the court may deny the motion sua sponte. 
Motions for relief from the automatic sought for post-petition default in a chapter 11 or 13 case with respect to the debtor’s principal residence must be accompanied by LBF 4001-1.
A Motion filed without concurrence is self-scheduled and should be accompanied by the Motion/Pleading, Notice of Motion, Certificate of Service (evidencing service of the Motion/Pleading and Notice of Motion), and Proposed Order.
