I am confused by all of the rules. Whether I would have to pay rent to stay? whether I would be liable for rent due after the filing, etc. I plan to see a bankruptcy attorney but would like some insight first. I am about 1 month behind on my rent, lost my job and need to file chapter 7 for other legit reasons (credit cards I can't pay, etc.) but could definitely use some extra time in my home if possible. This whole situation stinks. Thanks for your insight.
