Can bankruptcy stop lawsuits?

Yes. Once filed, a bankruptcy stops all collection activity, including lawsuits. However, bankruptcy will not stop criminal proceedings; and bankruptcy will not stop civil suits for the establishment of paternity, domestic violence, for the establishment or modification of an order for domestic support obligations or concerning child custody or visitation, or for dissolution of the marriage (except to the extent that such proceeding seeks to determine the division of property that is property of the bankruptcy estate).
