Once you file bankruptcy, an automatic stay is ordered by the bankruptcy court. The automatic stay prohibits any and all creditors from contacting you and it also keeps any creditors from making any attempts to collect a debt from you - this would include taking a judgment against you, issuing a garnishment, freezing bank accounts, etc.
