Stop Creditor Harassment!
Creditors are harassing me and my family. They are calling me at home and work, and sending threatening letters. Will they stop if I file for bankruptcy?
When you file your petition for bankruptcy with the court, an “Automatic Stay” goes into effect that prohibits all creditors from taking any action against you to collect a debt. The creditors you listed in your Petition, Schedules and Mailing Matrix will receive a notice from the court shortly after you file for bankruptcy.
If a creditor violates the Stay, you should immediately tell your attorney, as serious fines are imposed for willful violations of this statute, and it is effective even if the creditor doesn’t know about it.
