Yes. It will get them to stop calling. Otherwise, the court will let them know when you file.

Speak with an attorney about your specific situation. If you can not find an attorney, contact your local Bar association and they will refer you to one.
Part of the bankruptcy process is for you and your lawyer to meet with your creditors and their lawyers. This meeting is typically 30 days after your first file and held by your trustee. During this meeting you will be sworn in under oath and all discussions during the meeting will be recorded. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the bankruptcy papers filed on your behalf. This meeting doesn't normally take too long and creditors are not necessary required to appear.
After this meeting, your assets are liquidated and your creditors are repaid.

Absolutely never tell anyone, especially a creditor that you plan to filie BK! All this does is make them move faster to secure their debt and position with judgments, or act to reposess whatever they can...BEFORE you file. Yes, when you file, they will stop calling and trying to collect...BECAUSE THAT IS THE LAW..they can't continue doing so.
After you file, creditors will even try to have this "automatic stay" stopped, or if you screw up and have the case dismissed even for a few days technical error, will then pounce on anything they can find.
Sure, a collector is going to stop calling because you said you would file it. That's all it takes to stop them from calling or trying to collect. tell them your gonna file BK...which means they likely won't get anything once you do. That wouldn't give them anyreason to act faster and be more determined now would it? Really sounds kinda' dumb just saying it doesn't it?
