Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer.
Any debts (rent arrears, attorney fees, etc.) resulting from an unlawful detainer are dischargeable in a Bankruptcy. However, you may have to actually go to the clerk at the court that issued the resulting judgment (if one was already issued), and ask to vacate the judgment based on the Bankruptcy. If the judgment does show up on your credit report, then once the judgment is vacated, you have to notify the credit bureaus to remove the judgment from your credit report.
