Pinellas County Middle District Bankruptcy Court


Filing for bankruptcy is never easy but sometimes it is the only way. When you are late on your payments creditors will constantly call and attempt to collect your debt. Various companies will probably call you several times per day in reference to you paying off your debt. The high call volume is stressful and aggravating.

According to law once you file bankruptcy your creditors cannot harass you with phone calls. Once you file bankruptcy, according to the automatic stay law it is illegal for your creditors to continue to try and collect your debt. Regardless of the amount of debt you have once it becomes part of your bankruptcy your creditors must refrain from contacting you.
