Bankruptcy When Facing An Eviction

Facing the possibility of an eviction from one's home can be a terrifying and stress filled experience. An eviction starts with the posting of a notice by the landlord who is typically a 3-day notice to pay or quit or a 30-day notice to vacate. The eviction process is an expedited procedure under California state law that moves very quickly and does not provide much of an opportunity for a tenant to negotiate with one's landlord or make alternate arrangements for a place to live. The Shakoori Law Group has helped many tenants facing eviction and other crushing financial debt obtain valuable time by filing a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. If you are facing an eviction, the Shakoori Law Group can help.

Once our office files a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy under the Federal Bankruptcy Code an automatic stay goes into affect. The automatic stay means that all eviction proceedings in state court must stop. A Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy has the effect of bringing all of your financial matters including the eviction under the jurisdiction of the Federal Bankruptcy Court. The automatic stay that occurs when a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy is filed will delay the eviction process. The extra time can permit you to negotiate with your landlord to stay in the property or provide valuable time to relocate to a new home.

It is important to keep in mind that an eviction moves very quickly so you should seek legal advice from a qualified Orange County bankruptcy attorney as soon as you receive a 3 day notice to pay or quit or a 30 day notice.
