A Motion for Relief from the automatic stay is basically a request from a creditor to the Bankruptcy Court for permission to take back collateral. Motions for Relief are set down for hearings before the Bankruptcy Court. In Northwest Georgia, these hearings are held at the Federal Building in downtown Rome GA. Debtors and their bankruptcy attorney have the opportunity to defend against the motion. If a creditor has good cause for filing the motion, it will be granted. If the debtor and the bankruptcy attorney can mount a reasonable defense, the request will be denied.
