Filing bankruptcy can stop an eviction, unless the landlord has already gotten a judgment of possession. Don’t wait–timing is crucial.
To keep possession of your property that is collateral on a secured debt, you need to give the creditor “adequate protection.”
A creditor might want to pursue your co-debtor, protect itself from violating the stay, or take some other action other than collect money.
A creditor might ask to pursue an insurance-paid claim or to finish a lawsuit determining if you incurred the debt through fraud.
Creditors sometimes have good reasons to ask for permission to finish resolving an ongoing dispute outside of bankruptcy court.
