What can I do if a creditor keeps trying to collect money after I have filed bankruptcy?

If the creditor continues to attempt to collect a debt after the bankruptcy is filed, the creditor may be in violation of the automatic stay. You should immediately notify your attorney, if you have one, of the creditor’s collection efforts. If you are not represented, you may provide notice to the creditor that you have filed bankruptcy and documents such as the bankruptcy petition and Notice of Filing may assist the creditor in determining your status as a debtor who may be protected by the automatic stay. If the creditor continues an attempt to collect, you may be entitled to take legal action against the creditor. Any such legal action brought against the creditor will be complex and will normally require representation by a qualified bankruptcy attorney.
