Can creditors sue me for debts if I file for bankruptcy?

I just filed for bankruptcy because I incurred a huge amount of debt. I am afraid that my creditors would file a case against me for nt ebing able to pay for my debt on time before I filed for bankruptcy and because they are not able to immediately recover the debt that I incurred before bankruptcy.

    Since you already filed for bankruptcy, you have nothing to worry about. One of the benefits of filing for bankruptcy is that creditors cannot sue you because they are banned from commencing legal proceedings against you to recover debts incurred before bankruptcym after the making of the Bankruptcy Order.

    OCBC Plus! VISA Debit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    I recommend the OCBC Plus! Visa Debit Card, for people who buys groceries at NTUC Fairprice (practically every Singaporean who’s not on RedMart). The OCBC Plus! Visa Debit Card offers a decent 4% rebate at NTUC FairPrice, Unity and Warehouse Club if you spend $200 outside of the “NTUC network” that month. If you spend $500, and your rebate goes up to 7%, you also get 3% link points when shopping on FaiPrice On. The downside is that the OCBC Plus! Visa Debit Card has an annual fee of $24. This is waived for the first year and subsequently takes $1,200 of spending per year (avg. $100 a month) to waive.
