Harassing creditor phone calls or process servers lurking at your home or place of employment is highly upsetting. Once you retain our attorney, he contacts creditors and they, under normal circumstances, cease contacting the client. In instances where process servers are seeking to serve lawsuit papers upon a client, the filing of a bankruptcy petition must occur for the lawsuit to stop. The law, once the bankruptcy is filed, forbids any lawsuits from proceeding. This law is known as the Automatic Stay.
