Will Bankruptcy Stop Creditors from Calling Me?
When you file for bankruptcy, the court puts out an "automatic stay." This stay prohibits creditors from contacting you and it’s a welcome relief for most filers; a time to breathe deeply and regroup.
However, creditors can ask the court to "lift" the stay and attempt to contact you again. There are some exceptions to the automatic stay. It’s best to speak with a bankruptcy attorney about your specific circumstances.
