at this moment im not in any official bankruptcy and he deposited the checks into his account yesterday by tomorrow the checks shoud be no good. what actions can he take against me and what should i do becasue i have already lost about four cars and have no more money and thats about all the money i owe what can i expect?
Well bouncing checks is a crime so he could report it to the police.
On the civil front, you can file for bankruptcy ASAP and make sure that he's listed as a creditor.
Hope this helps to clarify things.
the checks have not bouced the account is frozen do to me reporting losing my check books yesterday so technically they wont bounce. but they will be returned.
Yes, and if you do not make the checks good, you can be charged with a crime.
so if i file for BK tomorrow will i be protected?
If he's listed, yes, you would be protected from civil suit.

so how about the criminal side?
To avoid criminal liability, since you issued the original checks, you'd have to make them good.
what if i am un able the company is done
That's not a factor for criminal law.
It's not a valid defense to criminal charges.
Is there anything else?
