How can bankruptcy protect me from aggressive debt collectors?

One of the primary benefits of filing for bankruptcy is the protection the bankruptcy court offers you from creditors and collectors during your bankruptcy proceedings. When you file, the court grants you an ‘automatic stay’ on the collection of debt, which means that all creditors are legally barred from attempting to recover money from you. It is possible for a creditor to regain the right to attempt collections, but only if they receive special dispensation from the court.
