Hi Roger,You answered my question...
Hi Roger,You answered my question before. This is a follow up. You mentioned I can file a "in rem" can you explain what that is, whether I file at bk court or to the judge at the UD bench trial date? Can you send me a link to the form?My tenant who I filed a UD suing for possession of my property (not back rent) filed a bk one day before our court date as a tactic. Her bk case was dismissed after 14 days as she never filed ANY paperwork. Also since I did not sue her for money, I was not even listed as a creditor on her filing,however, she still use that and filed an automatic stay on our trial date, that was a month ago. Now I'm worried since a person can file as many bk as they want, I suspect she will highly likely file again, ONE DAY before our court date again (which is March 3rd). Is there anyway when I see the judge I can show the motion to lift stay I filed in bk court and get a judgement? She did not appear in court last time, and she had not returned ANY of my daily phone calls or text messages, so I know most likely she won't show up in court on March 3rd. IF she doesn't show up on that date and I have filed a motion to lift automatic stay, will the judge grant me judgement and writ of possession since I can prove she is abusing bk law?

It sounds like your key concern is regarding the tenant from filing again just as you again try to evict. You should note that if she file twice in a one year period the stay only last 30 days unless extended by Court after request by party. If she files threes times in a one year period there is no automatic stay unless the Court imposes it after debtor requesting it. See http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/uscode/11/3/IV/362 go to the very bottom after section 28 and you will see the language as to the stay ending after 30 days. This was brought about by the bankruptcy reform act of 2005. You should also note that since 2005 if you can get a eviction judgment granted before she files for bankruptcy then the stay does not impact you. The goal here is to probably move fast and show judge a copy of the bankruptcy dismissal.

Let me know if you have any follow up questions.

Ron
