I am currently in Chapter 7 BK. The automatic stay is in

I am currently in Chapter 7 BK. The automatic stay is in place. I have an eviction lawsuit that is ready to go to trial, but they pushed it off until 1/20/16 because of the BK. My question is... if they have not filed a motion to lift the stay, does the stay continue to be in effect past the 30 days. So if the landlord goes to court on 1/20/2016 without a relief from stay, is the eviction able to proceed? I filed BK on 12/11/2015.

I filed a civil action in FL county court (not small claims)

I filed a civil action in FL county court (not small claims) on 9/10/15; and found out afterward the party I was suing filed Ch-13 a few weeks before (8/13/15). After being served with my summons, he amended the schedules of his Ch-13 creditor lists to include me (9/20/15), but by the time all this happened, the first meeting of the creditors had already occurred, and the deadline to object to confirmation had also passed. Confirmation Hearing is scheduled for 11/12/15. Proofs of Claim due by 12/15/2015.QUESTION:Under Federal Bankruptcy Law, for Ch-13, what is a late entering pro se creditor required to do to make an appearance and proffer a proof of claim and then pursue a motion for relief of stay to pursue the county case, or is it too late to get involved?

I am trying to find out whether there is any rule that limits

I am trying to find out whether there is any rule that limits how far back they can request documents in a 2004 exam. They are asking for 10 years of documents. They are relevant to the creditor's claims, but it is going to be burdensome. That seems like my only defense. Is there a rule or statute that limits how far back they can go?
