Here is the timeline of events:1) April 15, 2016 - Filed Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in the District of Alaska2) May 30, 2016 (with 60 days of filing) I filed Official Form 427 expressing that my residential lease would not be assumed (we decided to reject the lease and seek more affordable housing).June 11, 2016 - Notified Landlord that we have completely moved out (Please note that rent was paid in full up to July 1, 2016) so we thought we were doing the right thing by leaving early once we knew we would no longer be able to afford the apartment.We are 100% sure that the landlord received our notification.The landlord just sent me a collection notice and notice of a pending late fee if I do not pay July-September rent. He also included the following statement "Bankruptcy will not protect you from your early termination of our Rental Agreement nor for any damages to the property (there were none). Once damages have been assessed, they will be forwarded to you for immediate payment. Until then, rent is due per our agreement and both rent and late fees will keep accruing through the end of September when your lease ends. If you decide not to pay and not to abide by or agreement, you will also be responsible for any attorney and collection fees. Choose wisely."

What constitutes a serious injury? I have a on-going unlimited civil lawsuit against an individual who is currently in a Ch 7 Bankruptcy Proceeding, who as our former, perpetrated an unlawful self-help eviction of us by hiring a thug who forcibly entered our apartment wielding a baseball bat, who assaulted, terrorized and forcibly evicted us from our apartment, breaking my arm in the process and causing mental anguish and emotional distress, the dispossession of our home and of all of our personal property. Our action includes 11 Causes of Action, 2 in Contract, 3 in Statute and 6 in Tort. The thug was arrested and ultimately convicted of felony assault. Is our lawsuit dischargeable?

If I purchased my home with a land contract subject to the current mortgage. The only stipulation was that I had to put the mortgage in my name by Jan 2017. Anyway, I am currently 30 days behind in payments as of April 1, 2016.My question is that if I do not pay April Rent/mtg what is the process timeline for the mortgage holder/landlord to evict me. I am planning on filing bankruptcy at the end of April. I would like to stay in the home till the end of June but I need to know my legal rights and the timeline/process for eviction in Oregon.

I will be declaring bankruptcy soon (chapter 7-credit

I will be declaring bankruptcy soon (chapter 7-credit cards) , was planning on pushing off but now have a judgement against me from one credit card company. The issue I have is that this month I don't have the approximately $1300 I need for bankruptcy (lawyer and fees).Thats also the amount I pay in rent every month. So my question is should I not pay to my landloard this month in order to pay those fees? hopefully I would catch up with my rent in next month or two...what happens with rent* during bankruptcy procedures? how behind does one have to be in rent payments prior to been possibly evicted? does my plan make sense?Lets say I wouldn't pay water and internet this month, can they collect this month afterwords? would they disconect my service?I have never failed in paying my rent before. Thanks*both past due amounts and ongoing.

My Chapter 7 bankruptcy was discharged on 1/31/12 while I had an active apartment lease. I subsequently had to break the lease because I couldn't pay the rent. I received a bill for among other things rent for a time after I had vacated and given notice. That bill is on my credit report as a collection dated 7/19/12. Can I add this debt to my bankruptcy?

There is a judgment against a couple and their adult son.

There is a judgment against a couple and their adult son. Now this couple filed bankruptcy and having the adult son as their dependent, so they could make themselves qualified for Ch 7 BK.1. The son is one of the judgment debtor, can this couple request for discharge of the judgment in the BK filing?2. Can the creditor still collect the son for the whole amount of the judgment even though the parents filed bankruptcy?3. The couple claimed the son as their dependent, but if the son is not living together with them, or if the son has income, but the couple are not reporting his income, and using the son for the Means Test to multiply the numbers, is it illegal?4. How can the creditor raise this question? Will the trustee go check for the son's employment and income record? Will this be possible to disqualify the couple for Ch7 BK?5. The couple is renting a house, they don't have real property. For the Mean Test (Form 22A-2), can they add the number on Line 8 for house insurance and operation cost to their expenses? For line 9, if their rent is lower than the allowance, which number they should enter? Can they enter the higher allowance/ the regions median?6. Can the son later also file bankruptcy to avoid paying the judgment money, after his parents included him in their BK filing as a dependent?
