Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
In the eviction case, you need to file for a "Stay" in the MO court and attach proof of your bankruptcy as grounds for the stay. Under Bankruptcy law, an automatic stay is enacted by the filing of BK and you need to present that proof to the court in MO where the eviction was filed and they will stay the eviction proceeding.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.
