The filing of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy can temporarily stop eviction. The Chapter 7 Bankruptcy must be filed prior to the Court Order for eviction. It is not a permanent solution. It may give you time to negotiate with your landlord or seek financial assistance. Filing Chapter 7 may also eliminate debt that you are paying on and free up money for your rent. You are still required to pay rent if you want to stay in your residence after you file the Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. If you want to stay, you may need to assume the lease as part of the Chapter 7 Bankruptcy.
If you can work out a new deal in writing with your landlord prior to filing bankruptcy you may be able to assume the new deal as part of the bankruptcy. You would then be responsible for paying rent under the new deal.
