Hello Hannah,

When someone files for bankruptcy, it automatically stops all other lawsuits or collection efforts by judgment creditors if they have already obtained a court judgment. So it is beneficial for your boyfriend to file for bankruptcy as soon as possible. When he does file for bankruptcy, he would list the creditor in his filing paperwork, and the bankruptcy court will notify the creditor. Or you can have his lawyer call them and give them the bankruptcy case number, and they will be prohibited from continued lawsuits or collection efforts. See Notifying Creditors of Bankruptcy. If he has filed by the time of the hearing on 11/3, I would bring the bankruptcy paperwork with the case number ***** it, and the hearing court will be forced to stop the proceedings.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
