Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
I bought a foreclosure property last year. The previous are still living in the property. I filed for eviction. I won judgement for possession and writ of possession, but was stopped due to previous owner (husband) filing for bankruptcy. He filed for bankruptcy three times to delay it long as possible. Finally, the judge order the previous owner (husband) that he will not be able to file bankruptcy for another 180 days. Now the previous owner (wife) is filing for bankruptcy to delay the eviction.
After googling and researching online, it seems the best option is 'in rem' relief from the bankruptcy judge. I am already filing for motion to lift automatic stay, but I was wondering if I need to file something different or do I just ask the judge at the hearing for lifting automatic stay?
What document would I need to show to convince the judge to grant 'in rem' relief?
My question is actually directing to requesting 'in rem' relief.
I already have filed motion to lift automatic stay before, so I know what is needed.
