Will Bankruptcy Stop a Lawsuit Against Me?

Bankruptcy is great for making the creditors stop calling you and for stopping collection actions.  However, filing bankruptcy does not stop all types of lawsuits or efforts to collect money.

Bankruptcy will not stop the following actions:

  • The prosecution of a criminal case
  • A paternity, child support, or alimony case
  • A tax audit, the issuance of a tax deficiency notice, a demand for a tax return, the issuance of a tax assessment, or the demand for payment of such an assessment
  • Evictions, in some cases

Tell your bankruptcy attorney about any of these lawsuits or actions you have so your attorney can make the best decision for you in your bankruptcy.
