Filing Bankruptcy Stops Creditor Harassment Immediately

When the phone rings, you should not have to worry that a debt collector is on the other end of the line. You should not have to avoid opening the mail for fear of reading nasty letters. One way to get relief from overbearing creditors is to file for bankruptcy protection.

Once you file for bankruptcy, the court orders an automatic stay that brings all creditor activity to a temporary halt during bankruptcy proceedings. An automatic bankruptcy stay can:

  • Stop harassing phone calls from creditors
  • Stop creditors from demanding payment
  • Halt any lawsuits against you
  • Stop repossession of your vehicle or other personal property
  • Stop foreclosure proceedings from moving forward
  • Stop bank levies on your accounts
  • Stop wage garnishments attached to your paycheck

Additionally, once you file for bankruptcy, whether Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, you can tell creditors that they must talk to us, not you. If they continue to contact you, we can help pursue sanctions against them for violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).
