Can Bankruptcy Stop Eviction?
When facing eviction, bankruptcy may be a viable option for some people. Filing for bankruptcy can provide a temporary reprieve from an eviction and help individuals get back on their feet financially. Bankruptcy can stop an eviction in certain cases, but it’s important to understand the implications of filing before you make a decision.
If you are facing imminent eviction due to nonpayment of rent, Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be able to stop the process. This type of filing allows debtors to retain their property and repay creditors over time through a court-approved payment plan. It is also possible in some circumstances for debtors to discharge past due rent payments in chapter 7 bankruptcy proceedings; however, this is only allowed if all other debts have been cleared beforehand. Ultimately, the decision whether or not filing for bankruptcy will stop an eviction depends on individual circumstances and state laws.
