I file motions to find creditors in contempt about once a month. My fees are paid by the creditor as part of the penalty for their contempt.

If there is a discharge in bankruptcy it is illegal to continue collections. If the creditor does not stop you can file a lawsuit for damages.

You should retain counsel now. And I hope you've kept good records of the creditor's contacts. They're all illegal.

That depends on how much it's bothering you and how certain you are the creditor was actually notified of your bankruptcy filing. Usually a simple letter from an attorney will suffice to get the harassment to stop.

    Once you file bankruptcy I would give creditors ONE warning about their obligation to cease collection practices. If they continue after their warning, I would contact an attorney.

    If a creditor still bothers one of my clients after filing bankruptcy, we sue on the second contact. The first, if its a debt collector.

    You're the debtor. Who is contacting you? Your question makes no sense. If you're in bankruptcy you already should have a lawyer, and if creditors are still contacting you there is an excellent chance that you screwed up in some way that you do not realize. See a lawyer immediately.
