Yes, they will! By law, all actions against a debtor must cease once the bankruptcy documents are filed.
Creditors cannot initiate or continue any lawsuits, wage garnishees, or even telephone calls demanding payments.
Secured creditors such as banks holding a lien on a car, will get the stay lifted if you cannot make payments.
