The tenant is protected by the. Automatic stay under bankruptcy law. However it may be possible to get relief in bankruptcy court, depending on the specific facts of the case. Then you would be able to proceed with the eviction in the state court. I have successfully evicted tenants who have filed for bankruptcy, by going to bankruptcy court first. If you would like me to review the specific facts of your case and see if I could be of assistance to you, Call my office at 609-927-9227 to set up an appointment to come in for a consultation. I would be pleased to help you.

The L/T action will be stayed. However if the tenant does not pay or continues to fail to pay, you can get the stay lifted.
