After filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you will be put into "automatic stay," which immediately stops your creditors from trying to collect on your debts. This temporarily prevents creditors, to whom you owe secured debt, from going after your car, house or other property. The automatic stay will cease most legal proceedings from happening and will end collection efforts.
In essence, once you file your bankruptcy case, most of your financial problems are over.
