I am currently resident of Florida and reside in an apartment. Due to job loss several months ago I was late with my rent. I attempted many times to work arrangements out with my property management company however they have filed an eviction. I have recently found a new job and can afford the rent going forward. If I file Chapter 13 am I able to back the rental arrears in the payment plan? if so will that stop the eviction process?

Just had a positive consultation/meeting with attorney about

Just had a positive consultation/meeting with attorney about Chp.11 for business. However, its going to be very expensive,but I need it. Most attorney's want it all up front (30K), but I am up against an immediate time frame to file. I am thinking about filing it myself to secure the automatic stay, and then hire the attorney shortly thereafter once I have all the money....What do you think?

I am in chapter 7. IRs said we owed taxes from 2008 to 2012. Those are listed in our bankruptcy. We do not owe for 2013,14,,15 and all returns are in. In the meantime they sent a garnishment to our pay master(retired military ) and garnished anyway $1900. They referred us to a tax advocate name and number so they can give money back k. Should I file a motion w court saying it was seized improperly and it is to be returned or believe the advocate will do their job?
