Will filing bankruptcy stop my creditors from calling me?


Once your bankruptcy is filed, your creditors will be notified by mail that you have filed bankruptcy.  It may take 30 – 60 days for them to receive and process the notice. In the meantime, if you are getting phone calls from your creditors you can give them your case number and tell them you filed a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.  This should stop the phone calls. Most call centers work off automated dialers and it may take 2 – 3 days to get your number out of their system so you may continue to receive calls over the next few days.


Collection letters should also stop.  If it has been more than 60 days and you are still receiving letters, please provide our office with a copy and we will send a notice that they must stop attempts to collect a debt while you are in bankruptcy.
