Can Filing for Bankruptcy get rid of my Lawsuit?

Many people who just got sued or were sued in the past become curious about bankruptcy to see if it can help them. In many cases, it will depend entirely on the nature of the lawsuit. If you go long enough without paying your credit card, there is a pretty decent chance that you will get sued. Even if it already happened, it isn’t too late to save yourself by filing for bankruptcy. For some people, depending on circumstances like how much the debt is and what other debt the individual may have, a bankruptcy might be a good alternative to spending money on a lawyer to defend a lawsuit which you might lose anyway- especially if you really do owe the money. Also bear in mind, that the automatic stay in bankruptcy will stop a lawsuit dead in its tracks!
