Resolved Question:

I am understanding that a writ of possession of my home from a foreclosed auction cannot be delayed by submitting for bankruptcy. I will still need to vacate my home within that first ten days. Is that right? Also, if I continue to submit for bankruptcy, would my new rental amount be part of that for consideration of the expenses?

Hi JACustomer,
1) Yes - once a writ of possession is issued, you will need to leave your home right away (within 10 days).
2) Yes - the rent that you will be paying will be listed as an expense in your Bankruptcy.

I think this is what you wanted to know. If not, please let me know.
Thank you.
