Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
You can stop payments to the company, but you will be in breach of the contract (considering you failed to cancel the contract in a timely manner).
However, since they have filed for bankruptcy they have the option to assume or reject the contract they have with you. You may want to consider contacting their bankruptcy attorneys about the situation and ask that they reject your contract. If they reject the contract then you will be relieved from any obligation to make payments under the contract. If you have not received any contact information for their attorneys, the bankruptcy court clerks can assist in providing information on the case, including contact information for the attorney. If they don't provide it directly, they should have computers in the clerks office that you can use to obtain a copy of the docket report which would have the attorneys information on it, along with a record of any and all documents filed in the case.

Thanks for your reply and I hope you make a full post-surgery recovery.
