After a Debtor has filed a case (i.e., "petition"), creditors must stop all collection efforts against the Debtor for a period of time, unless they get permission from the bankruptcy court to continue. For filing requirements, please refer to the United States Bankruptcy Code (Title 11, United States Code), the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure (Bankruptcy Rules), and the Local Rules of the U. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida. Only a licensed attorney can give you legal advice.
This protection from collection efforts is referred to as the "automatic stay."The Bankruptcy Code and Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure determine which chapter one is eligible to file, which debts can be eliminated, how long repayment must continue, which possessions can be kept, etc. Bankruptcy petition preparation services are listed in the telephone book.

We don’t talk about cutting up our credit cards, or clipping coupons to save .00 on the newest Swiffer mop, or making a budget that forces us to save 10% of our income while we devote the rest to “guilt-free spending”.I don’t talk about my own personal battle with consumer debt and how much I struggled to get out of it, because come on, I am Mr. I was cleaning and ironing my five dollar bills and storing them meticulously in a photo album at age ten*, I was never going to go out and spend so much on my credit card that I couldn’t pay it back at the end of the month!
