How Do I Stop a Lawsuit or Summons in Suffolk County?

Filing a chapter 7 bankruptcy will stop a lawsuit or summons.

Depending upon how the summons was served on you, you typically
have 20 - 30 days from when the summons was served before the
creditor can get a judgment against you.

Until the creditor has a judgment against you, they cannot garnish your
salary, freeze your bank account, or put a lien against your house.

Once your Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition is filed with the Bankruptcy
Court, that stops the summons or lawsuit against you-- and it prevents
the creditor from freezing your bank account, garnishing your salary, or
putting a lien against your house.
(This is known as the "automatic stay" of bankruptcy).
