Your finances are being held by the court and the lawyers will tell the creditors that you filed bankruptcy. You are still responsible for the debt. WRONG!

If you file a chapter 13, you are still responsible for a certain portion of your debt, to be paid over a 5 year period, and creditors have to stop calling and harassing you.
