Thinking once the paper work is filled I'd answer the phone and give the creditior my lawyers number. Anyone do this?
Once it is officially filed and they get notice the calls will stop. You can tell them to call your lawyer but creditors/collectors really don't care or listen. Once they get official notice it will stop.
You NEED to start answering the calls. Your attorney will send notice to those creditors listed on your CRs. The accounts that have been sold to other creditors or debt collectors will not know. You need to answer the phone and give them the details. If you dont, they will continue to try and collect on you, INCLUDING putting collection accounts on your credit reports. You need to stop that action before it happens. They are a huge pain in the ass to get off, and likely are correct and wont be removed. If you can head that action off at the pass, then they will never appear at all. If you ignore the calls, they will basically have free reign on your reports. And they can continue collection efforts until they are notified in writing by the courts.
