So we can stop creditors from harassing you that also depends on how far along that you are in the delinquency process, I guess. So if it’s an original creditor who’s calling you once you’ve hired us on, we will give them our contact information or you give them our contact info and generally they stop. Now for debt collectors it’s guaranteed that they stop after you’ve hired me on. For original creditors they’re not covered by something called the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, in practice though, most of them do stop calling you after you’ve hired on an attorney.
