Creditor Harassment Ends When You File For Bankruptcy

Do You Dread Answering The Phone And Going To The Mailbox?

Creditors and collection agencies don't want excuses. They want their money. They use every tactic within the law — and sometimes illegal tactics — to make you pay up. This relentless harassment takes a toll. It is depressing and stressful. You cringe when the phone rings. The pile of bills sit unopened. You wish it would just stop.

Filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy triggers an automatic stay. This means that creditors and third-party debt collectors must halt all collection efforts from the date that your petition is filed:

  • Phone calls or in-person visits
  • Bills and demand letters
  • Harassment of family members
  • Wage garnishment
  • Repossession
  • Lawsuits and judgments
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act regulates creditors and collection agencies. It can punish companies for violating consumers' rights. Our attorneys will deal directly with your creditors and pursue FDCPA fines for any abusive behavior. No matter what a debt collector says, you cannot be arrested for unpaid debts. They cannot swear at you or threaten violence. They cannot call your home early in the morning or late at night.
