Yes, bankruptcy will halt any lawsuit action. If the lawsuit will be included and discharged in the bankruptcy is dependent upon the ruling of the court.

Is it legal to get a credit card after bankruptcy?

It is up to the credit card company/bank to give you a credit card. If they approve you, that is their risk. Lately, card companies purposely target people with bad credit (including people who have gone through bankruptcy) because they have a better chance of making a profit through late fees and high interest. Also, new bankruptcy laws state that credit card debt can now not be relieved through bankruptcy. So, if you have bad credit or you are an idiot with your money, don't fool around with credit cards.

Should one file for bankruptcy or settle with credit card company?

I have been considering claiming bankruptcy for quite some time now. I have no money and am a student. I was injured on the job a few years back and am going to be receiving a settlement offer from the worker's compensation company soon. The settlement would pay half of my credit card debt. Should I try to settle with the credit card company for less than I owe? Or should I still claim bankruptcy like I was planning originally? If I claim bankruptcy, will the money I get from the settlement be up for grabs? If so, can a bankruptcy lawyer negotiate a settle-for-less deal? Help!
