Can filing under Chapter 7 stop lawsuits, garnishments or attachments?

Yes.  The filing of a Chapter 7 case automatically stays or stops most lawsuits and attachments that have been filed against you.  Usually with 7-10 days after your Chapter 7 case is filed, the court will mail a notice to all your creditors ordering them to refrain from any further collection action against you.  However, when necessary, we will immediately notify one or more of your creditors of the filing of your case.
