This answer was rated:

A creditor is trying to sue me in the local court and is seeking to bankrupt me. I have far more creditors than any ability to pay and will now file for voluntary bankruptcy before the due date of reply to the local court. Can the solicitor trying to sue prevent me from voluntary bankruptcy, or anyone else for that matter?

Thank you for your question. To Introduce myself I am a sydney based Solicitor and will do my best to provide you with relevant information to assist you.

No they cannot stop you.

Once you declare bankruptcy the court should finish and be withdrawn.

Make sure you note the current creditor as part of your bankruptcy.

Here is some information on declaring yourself bankrupt.

I hope this is of assistance.
