Can Bankruptcy Stop Eviction?
If you are facing eviction, it is important to know your rights and options. One potential solution may be to file for bankruptcy, which can help protect your assets and give you time to get back on your feet. But the question remains: can bankruptcy stop eviction?
Filing for bankruptcy typically stops creditors from attempting to collect a debt or take any action against you. This is known as the "automatic stay" and applies when an individual files either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. As long as this automatic stay is in effect, creditors cannot move forward with proceedings such as evictions. However, there are circumstances where the automatic stay does not apply; if the landlord has already obtained a judgment against you prior to filing for bankruptcy, then they will still be able to proceed with eviction proceedings.
