The co-debtor stay is a special feature of chapter 13 bankruptcy, provided under 11 U.S.C. §1301. Bankruptcy cases carry with them a bankruptcy automatic stay which goes into effect on filing of a bankruptcy case to stop essentially all collections activity. The co-debtor stay is a relative of the automatic stay, but instead of protecting the debtor, it protects co-signers or co-obligors in particular ways.
