How soon do you notify my creditors that I have filed for Bankruptcy?
What do I need to provide to creditors so they will stop contacting me and how long does it take for you to notify creditors?
Trustees mail the notification of the bankruptcy within five days of the signing of the documents.
Collections calls should stop shortly after.
If you have filed bankruptcy and a collector calls you, inform the collector you have filed bankruptcy and give him the contact information for the trustee.
