It depends. You should hire a Maryland bankruptcy attorney to discuss the specifics of your case. There are too many variables to answer a general question like this. Best of luck.******The above does not establish an attorney-client relationship and is intended for informational purposes only.******

The entry of default does not do anything except allow the court to proceed to enter a default judgment with or without a hearing. It's just confirmation that no responsive pleading has been filed. But the question doesn't really make sense, as it is not clear what you are referring to being stayed.

An entry of default by a clerk is rather meaningless. It simply means the court can enter an order, depending on the judge's preference, with or without a hearing. You haven't given enough facts to know why that would matter to you, so you're getting an incomplete answer.
