One of the most significant benefits of bankruptcy is the relief you get from the harassment of creditors. Immediately upon filing for bankruptcy, the creditor must stop calling and/or sending you bills. This protection from debt collection continues throughout the bankruptcy process and becomes permanent once you are given a discharge.
Unfortunately, some creditors don’t obey the law and may continue trying to collect money from you during or after your bankruptcy. If this has happened to you, understand that you have rights. I advise anyone who has filed for bankruptcy and is still being contacted by creditors to contact an experienced Arizona bankruptcy attorney immediately. Even if the bankruptcy case is already closed, you can reopen the case and hold the creditor in contempt of court. In most cases, you can even force the creditor to pay your attorney fees associated with the contempt order.
Going through bankruptcy is stressful enough without having to deal with extra bullying from creditors. If you’ve been struggling with finances and are tired of hassling phone calls, bankruptcy may be the answer for you.
