How Do I Stop Bill Collectors From Contacting Me?
Many people are troubled by repeated communication from bill collectors. These calls or letters add a lot of stress when you are already worried about paying off your debts. One solution may be to file for bankruptcy protection. When you file for bankruptcy, you are granted what is called an automatic stay. This means that after you file, you will be immediately protected against any further attempts to collect your debt. This law is strictly enforced and will immediately stop calls lawsuits, garnishments, foreclosures and contact from creditors, because they are no longer able to collect from you while your bankruptcy is pending. In return, you get some peace of mind while your attorneys, the bankruptcy trustee, and the Court work to finalize your debt resolution.
