Relief from Automatic Stay (Motion)

Rev. 4/9/2019


11 U.S.C. § 362(d)

Miss. Bankr. L. R. 4001-1



The automatic stay is one of the fundamental debtor protections provided by the bankruptcy laws. It gives the debtor a breathing spell from his creditors, stopping all collection efforts, all harassment, and all foreclosure actions. It permits the debtor to attempt a repayment or reorganization plan, or just to be relieved of the financial pressures that drove him into bankruptcy.


Local Rule 5005-1(a)(2)(D) requires every motion have as an attachment a proposed order granting the motion.   


Local default form orders are available on the Court's website:


  • Default Order Granting Relief from Automatic Stay - Local form: MSSB-OGRAS.

    • Form order when a party does not file a response/objection to the motion.

  • Order Granting Limited Stay Relief Re: Dissolution of Marriage - Local form: MSSB-OGLSR


There is no provision under § 362 to lift the automatic stay as to an individual debtor.  However, when filing this type of motion, the party should include an agreed order and file the pleading and order using the docket event: Relief from Stay with Agreed Order.


See Chapter 11 Motions to Lift Stay regarding motions to lift the stay in a chapter 11 case.
