Can a creditor call me or send me collection letters after I file bankruptcy?

No. Once a bankruptcy petition is filed with the court creditors are not allowed to contact you in any way. The court sends written notice of the bankruptcy to the creditor, and you refer any telephone calls from creditors over to your attorney. If a creditor keeps calling you they can be sued for contempt of the bankruptcy court order.
