Legal Answers
Q. hello, I wanted to know if I file for bankruptcy, will it help forgive past owed rent and help prevent eviction?
A: I assume you do not have the money to cure the rent default.

Filing bankruptcy may delay the eviction for a few weeks. Maybe a little longer. Although you will wind up evicted anyway, but you should be able to discharge all the back rent owed up until the date you file.

After you have an eviction judgment on your record, other landlords probably will not want you. I suggest you move, right now.
Q. Does any collection attorney know how to collect the money from Amazon sellers accounts by a judgment?
A: You do it the same way you collect a judgment from any other defendant. First you must win a judgment and than you execute on assets. However, in the case of Amazon vendors you might have an advantage. The advantage is that you know where the defendant's money comes from and where it is located! It's all at Amazon.

You need to get a writ issued against Amazon to levy the account receivables that Amazon owes to the defendant. And then you will get your money.
Q. Would it be advisable to reach out to a lawyer now to submit a motion to quash, or wait until a default judgment?
A: I can't help but feel that you are going in the wrong direction. A motion to quash etc. is nothing more than fancy dance moves that do not win the lawsuit. It gives you extra time to file an answer or other response to the complaint. That's all it does for you. Are you going to waste time and money on hiring a lawyer to do that? Eventually, this may still go to trial. Do you owe the money? You should be worried about that.
