Some people who come to my office are concerned that they will be put in jail for owing money that they can't afford to pay. This is a very honest concern and we are happy that we can put their minds at ease.
After filing bankruptcy, you should no longer receive statements from creditors. But, in some instances, you may still receive some statements. Don’t worry. If you’ve filed bankruptcy or make a consumer proposal, there is no need to worry about the statements.
After filing bankruptcy, many people ask me why they still receive statements from creditors. Many times those people call me in panic mode as they thought the creditors would leave them alone once the bankruptcy process began.
After you’ve filed for bankruptcy, creditors must immediately put an end to their collection efforts. Unfortunately, this does not always occur, and you may continue to be harassed by creditors calling after bankruptcy.
