In some cases, yes, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy can give you a temporary reprieve from an eviction action, but it’s rarely a permanent solution. If you’re falling behind on your rent, it might be best to contact your landlord and try to make payment arrangements or work out mutually agreeable moving arrangements, because while a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing can buy you some extra time, it won’t be much, and you’ll soon find yourself back where you started.
